happiness is the key to progress

Welcome to Holmwood house

The Holmwood environment is one in which we strive to develop in our pupils a love of learning and happiness in all that they do.

Here education is a richly varied and ultimately enjoyable journey involving the development of curiosity, creativity, imagination, sensitivity, adaptability, motivation and enthusiasm - not to mention a fair splattering of fun!

The wealth of extra opportunities, the great facilities on offer, and the abundantly apparent family atmosphere, go a long way to creating that experience, whilst the clear dedication and care of the staff are amongst the school's greatest assets.

Happy learning is best achieved by combining freedom with a clear set of rules in an environment where good behaviour, traditional values, and respect for others are expected so that rounded individuals with high self esteem emerge and grow.

I look forward to welcoming you personally to Holmwood House.
