A national award to schools leading the way in high quality provision for more able learners.  Holme Grange School were first awarded the NACE mark in 2013 and it was reviewed and re-accredited again in 2017.  This means that our school has and will be NACE accredited from 2013 – 2020.

Only 400 schools in the whole country have gained the NACE Award with only 100 gaining re-accreditation after 3 years. Therefore we are one of only 100 schools in the country to be re-accredited. We are also the Regional Hub for NACE in this area.


Holme Grange is an IAPs school.  IAPs is a recognised kitemark of quality for Independent Schools. They represent 700 of the world’s leading Prep Schools and our Pre-Prep and Prep have the IAPs kitemark.
