“The mind is a fire to be kindled not a vessel to be filled”

In November 2013 Holme Grange was awarded the prestigious NACE Challenge Award for More Able, Gifted and Talented Pupils. This Award is given for high quality work by the whole school, teachers and governors, in challenging all pupils, including those with high abilities, to achieve their best.

We acknowledge that it is important that gifted and talented pupils are encouraged to think independently and to inquire into their preferred area of expertise. To fulfil the potential of gifted and talented pupils to think independently, we provide the opportunity, support and time to engage in independent thinking.

At Holme Grange we believe all pupils benefit from Quality First Teaching and high expectations. All students have individual needs, which put personalised learning at the heart of our and learning and teaching. Holme Grange is committed to providing an equality of challenge for all students and an inspiring education for life.
