Setting at HTA

At Holy Trinity Academy we regularly review our setting arrangements to ensure we best meet the needs of your child. Set reviews are built into the calendar for the end of each term, with an additional movement for year 7 students at the end of the Autumn half term.

KS3 setting

The setting in Maths, Science and ICT is determined by maths ability.

Students are set together for PE and Product Design.

For all other subjects the setting is determined by English.


Years 10 & 11 English sets are taught in mixed ability groups.

In year 9 there are six sets: two sets are for higher attainers (sets 9.6 and 9.5) and the other four sets (9.1, 9.2, 9.3 and 9.4) are mixed ability.

GCSE Science

Those students who have opted to study triple science will be placed in a separate group.
