Thank you for taking the time to look at our website I hope it gives you an insight to the opportunities we offer our pupils at Hollymount School. The school has spacious grounds which provide room for the children to play in, take part in sporting activities and also includes a ‘Forest School’. Our large hall is used for school community events and indoor sports. A second hall provides us with a dining room which produces fresh, home cooked food daily. The food is excellent and supports our healthy school status.
Teaching areas are resourced with up to date technology and are kept bright, with displays to support and celebrate the children’s learning. We have around 300 pupils between the ages of 2 and 11 and all are treated as individuals. Pupils attend 15 hours of Nursery before entering the main school when they start full time in our Foundation Stage Unit.
Hollymount is a happy, welcoming school with an inclusive ethos. Every child is valued, without discrimination, on the grounds of gender, ethnicity, culture or disability. We want children to enjoy school and work in partnership with parents, to enable children to reach their full potential both academically and socially.
Through a broad, balanced and varied curriculum, we aim to build pupils’ self-esteem and confidence, broaden their experiences, nurture and challenge their skills. This supports them to become happy, independent learners, keen to discover more about their world. Excellent activities enrich the curriculum within and beyond the school day. I firmly believe that every child has a talent for something. Finding and developing this talent is important to us. It is the key to building their confidence and will enable them to develop and flourish.
Children are expected to behave well, follow school rules and wear correct uniform at all times. I expect staff, parents and pupils to work together to build mutual respect within the school community. Through this we can trust each other and support the children in establishing a sense of responsibility.
You cannot experience our welcoming and caring environment or hear the buzz of children intent on their work by reading our prospectus. Do come and visit us and see the school for real. We would be delighted to show you round and answer any further questions you may have.
