Admissions

Thank you for considering our school, we would love to show you around. Each term we have Open Events which are a great opportunity to hear from the pupils. We can also arrange an individual visit to discuss specific questions you may have.

Holme Grange is a friendly, vibrant community where people matter, results count and a passion for excellence drives everything we do. We are a school with a real heart and soul, where we look beyond the grades to offer a breadth of opportunity which allows every pupil to flourish and every staff member to develop and succeed.

At Holme Grange questioning, divergent thinking and the freedom to learn from mistakes are all encouraged. Academic excellence, underpinned by a focus on the individual enables first-rate teaching and learning to thrive. Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning, develop good work habits and gain a sense that learning can thrill and invigorate.

 

Admissions Process

The start point to our admissions process is to come and have a look round the school. Nothing can replace this experience and you will see first hand how special our school is.

Entry to Little Grange and Reception is based upon informal discussions with the child’s parents and the Head teacher. Beyond Little Grange/Reception,  entry is based upon an Assessment Day during which baseline assessment tests are given in Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning. This entry process is designed to identify pupils who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education and to make a positive contribution towards the life of our school.

If you are interested in registering, you will be required to complete a Registration Form and pay a non-refundable fee of £200.

Acceptance – Two terms prior to your child starting at Holme Grange, you will receive an Offer Letter and will need to complete the Acceptance Form with a payment of £300 deposit which is refunded at the end of the final term of your child’s education at Holme Grange.

Before entry to the School, all children are encouraged to spend at least a morning in school before starting (taster day).

Please note: A confidential letter addressed to the Head teacher can be sent if there are any matters of which we ought to be aware before your child enters the School. Parents have a responsibility to inform the prospective school of any issues/conditions and disclose any reports both medical and academic relating to the applicant. Withholding information may necessitate the school reviewing their offer of a place. For further information please contact Mrs Julia Braithwaite, Admissions Registrar, at Registrar@holmegrange.org

UPDATE
