We look forward to welcoming your family to our school.





School Tours - During the school day and after school


If you are undecided as to if you have selected or been offered the right school for your child, you may wish to consider Holbrook Primary School as an alternative.  To this end, you are welcome to book a tour of Holbrook Primary to see for yourself what we are able to offer and if we could be a good fit for your very precious son or daughter .  Please telephone Mrs. Jennings, School Administrator, at the school office on 01473 328225 to book a tour with one of the Senior Leadership Team or for more information.
