The Holy Trinity Secondary School is a comprehensive school in Crawley, West Sussex, UK. The school has a roll of around 1300 students. [ [http://www.holytrinity.w-sussex.sch.uk/cms.asp?content=6 Holy Trinity School: An Introduction ] ]


The Holy Trinity School is believed to have been the first purpose-build Church of England comprehensive school in the country. It was developed in order to provide a secondary education based on Christian belief for boys and girls aged 11-18 years, in the neighbouring areas of North West Sussex, East Sussex and Surrey.

The school was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 17th December 1969.


The school has hit the press in 2006 [cite news | title=Schoolgirls expelled for using cocaine | publisher=The Guardian | date=March 1 2006 | url=http://www.guardian.co.uk/drugs/Story/0,,1721015,00.html | accessdate=2007-11-29] because of two drug-related incidents. As a result of the School's strict policy on drugs some pupils found in possession of drugs on the school site were permanently excluded.

On Tuesday 27 November 2007, a 14 year old pupil was found with an imitation gun, was arrested by police and has been excluded from school.

School Places

Admission to the school is by application only and the pupils come from an area within a ten-mile radius of Crawley. They take children from some independent schools as well local state primary schools.

The Governors give first priority to those who regularly attend a place of Christian worship but they also try to offer as many other places as possible to those who particularly want the school because of its Christian foundation, ethos and values.

Voluntary Aided Status

The Government provides the school with grant aid to cover 90% of the costs for external building maintenance and improvements. The Governors are responsible for 10% of total costs. Each family represented in the school is invited to commit an annual donation.
