Trinity Federation of Church Schools

Working and Growing Together

St Peter’s Primary, Great Witchingham and Hockering Primary Schools make up the first 3 church school Federation in Norfolk. Our Executive Head Teacher Mrs Livings leads all 3 schools, which share one governing body. The Federation provides both staff and pupils with exciting new opportunities for teaching and learning.


The children, governors and staff welcome you to the Trinity Federation of Church Schools.

As Church of England Schools we uphold the values of the Christian faith and work closely with our local churches and the diocese, as well as the local community and local authority. All are very involved in the life of our schools and should you choose our school we look forward to welcoming you and working with you.

Our aim is to create an environment in which your child can learn and establish sound foundations for learning enabling him/her to enjoy their time at their school and reach their individual potential.

Federation has provided both staff and pupils with exciting new opportunities for teaching and learning while retaining our distinctive character which makes the schools a place of Christian love and care where all are welcomed and included.

We aim to create a secure and positive environment for the whole school community and ensure that Christian Values are the foundation for our schools. We value the achievements and contributions of every member of our school community and aim to enable all pupils to develop their abilities to the full.

We hope you will find the information you need on our site, if any questions remain unanswered please do not hesitate to contact the individual school.
