Welcome to Holbrook Primary School

We are proud of our tradition of providing education in the community for over 150 years. All our staff are committed to providing the very best learning environment for the children and maintaining the high achievement levels of our school.

We aim for our pupils to feel confident that their voice will be heard. They are encouraged to take on responsibilities and develop leadership from an early age. Our School Council, with representatives from each class, is involved in decision making. Our reward system fosters a sense of belonging and a healthy competitive spirit.

We recognise the importance of our place in the community and, as an eco-school, we encourage the children to get involved in real-life projects such as running the recycling centre or fund-raising for a local charity. In addition, our International School status reflects the awareness that the children are encouraged to have of being global citizens.

At Holbrook we work to provide a safe and secure environment for the pupils. The facilities and resources are maintained to a high standard and technology is up to date to ensure our pupils have the best possible start to academic life.

Our Governors' Vision:

'Our vision is twofold. First and foremost, we are working both to maintain and strengthen the school’s central core of high standards of academic success and behaviour, set within a sound financial framework. Secondly, and very importantly, we aim to build on the strengths of pupils and teachers, allowing for enterprise and aspiration. We aim to employ visionary staff and allow them to soar with the children.'

Children continue to perform well and last year our year 6 continued an upward trend. A summary of our results can be found here .ks2-data-summer-2014.pdf
