Trip to Windsor Castle

On Wednesday this week, our Pupil Leaders (School Council, Head and Deputy Boys and Girls) went on a trip to Windsor Castle.  These are the highlights.

Firstly we travelled to Windsor in the minibus.  When we arrived we went through security and into the Chapel where we saw graves of past Royals such as Henry VIII and Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, who died aged 42 and had a special room all to himself.  We saw the changing of the guard and heard the band play music.  Then we went and saw part of the castle which consisted of a lot of art and weapons.  After that we had lunch and saw soldiers patrolling the castle grounds.  Then we went to the Great Park and had some free time.  After that we saw the Queen and part of the Royal family travelling to Ascot in the rain.  Then we went home.  It was just in time as it began to pour it down with rain!  It had been a great day and one we'd never forget.

Holy Trinity Primary School benefit from Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment scheme

Pupils attending Holy Trinity Primary School, in Sunningdale, will be looking to hone their footballing skills for the 2019/20 season after receiving their free Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack.

Stocked full of items including Nike match footballs, training bibs and numbered and lettered floor markers, the Premier League equipment pack will aid teacher delivery of active lessons across the curriculum.

The equipment pack was awarded to pupils at Holy Trinity Primary School following Miss Prince’s successful application for this year’s Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme, which is delivered by the Football Foundation.

The scheme is part of the Premier League Primary Stars education programme which uses the appeal of Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children at primary schools across England and Wales to learn, be active and develop important life skills. offers primary school teachers free curriculum-linked resources in English, Maths, PE and PSHE, and opportunities for schools to enter competitions and access free offers like the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment scheme.

Nick Perchard, Head of Community at the Premier League said: “The Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment packs have been extremely well-received in the past and will provide a very welcome boost as we approach the end of the school year. We hope that coupled with the free downloadable online resources, we can inspire children to do their best in the classroom and on the sports field.”

Miss Harding, PE co-ordinator, Holy Trinity Primary School, said: “New equipment is always welcome, especially such fantastic variety of quality items. I am sure that the children will love playing with the new equipment and that it will increase engagement in sessions.”
