Holy Trinity Catholic School first opened in 1975 and was based originally at St. Michael’s in Digbeth with Michael Hurley as Headteacher. In 1988 Holy Trinity opened at its current site in Small Heath Birmingham, with Tom Temple as Headteacher who served for 18 years. Holy Trinity Catholic School is a founding member of Birmingham Catholic Partnership.
In 2013 Holy Trinity received a “Good” Ofsted rating under the leadership of Martin Jones, Headteacher and in 2016 Colin Crehan became the 7th Headteacher of Holy Trinity.
Trinity was opened in September 1975 as a mixed 11-16 Catholic school. Before moving to premises previously occupied by Oakley Road Boys’ School, it had previously existed as St Michael’s in Digbeth. Michael Hurley was the first headteacher of Holy Trinity, overseeing the establishment of the school. In the early 1980s the Diocesan Schools Commission undertook a rationalisation of Catholic secondary provision in the city leading to the closure of five secondary schools. The decision was taken in 1986 to rebuild and refurbish Holy Trinity. Having achieved such a commitment Mr Hurley retired and was succeeded by Tom Temple. Mr Temple led the school through to the opening of the new premises in 1988.
It was also in this year that Holy Trinity became a founding member of the Birmingham Catholic Partnership comprising all the city’s Catholic secondary schools. Since then it has continued to enhance Catholic education in the city.
