Holy Trinity and S. Silas School was founded by the Church in 1847 to serve the community and to provide an education for every child in the area.
We offer all our children an education of the highest quality taught through the arts and lived through the principles and practice of the Christian faith. We provide a place where all children and adults know their contribution is valued and where they can develop their own faith in God and in one another.
We aim to help every child develop to their full potential, to achieve highly, succeed, and grow in confidence and abilities. Our inspiring curriculum provides all the skills every child will need for life: it develops their self-confidence, awakens their imagination and encourages them to think independently.
We value the diversity of backgrounds and cultures which enrich our life and help our school become the unique place it is. The life of our school is integral to that of the Parish: we both contribute to our local community and benefit from it in our achievements.
It is with this unity that we fulfil our school motto:
‘Fortis in Fide’
‘Strong in the Faith’
We also take inspiration and guidance from the following biblical verse:
‘And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day of the Lord approaching.’ (Hebrews 10:25)
