At Holy Trinity, we provide a very wide range of sporting activities both in school time and also as part of our extensive extra-curriculum provision. Despite being a centre-of-town school, we are fortunate enough to have a field, recently re-levelled and re-turfed, which is used throughout the year. Adventure Trail play equipment and our Nature Trail, as well as the use of bikes, trikes and scooters for the younger pupils, are popular features that help children make the most of outdoor play opportunities.
In addition to PE taught within the curriculum, a wide range of activities takes place both at lunchtime and after school. Extra-curricular activities on offer vary depending upon the time of year; they include a fundamental skills club for younger children, school football, girls’ football, street dance, netball, cross-country, cricket and rounders. Close links with Cheltenham Town Football club provide an opportunity for expert football coaching, and frequent use is made of specialist coaches during lesson time, for example, in the teaching of cricket, tennis, hockey and dance.
Matches are often held against other schools and we regularly participate in sporting tournaments and festivals, such as: football, rugby and cross-country. The school also takes part in the annual Cheltenham Country Dance Festival.
