Headmaster’s Welcome

Holmewood House is very much a family school where the positive relationships between the teachers and pupils allows us to get to know and understand the individual needs of each and every child.

We foster their talents and nurture their growth through a broad, balanced, challenging and exciting curriculum and in doing so, create an environment whereby each child is provided with every opportunity to fulfil their potential.

We believe that emotional and social well-being, self-esteem, happiness and confidence are of prime importance and are in themselves inextricably linked to academic progress and we aim to teach children resilience and an appreciation of global opportunities and developments in an ever-changing world.

We encourage children to become independent, creative and critical learners who aim for standards of excellence in all that they do. We encourage them to become their best selves in the fullest sense.

We believe that respect for children, faith in children and an ability to see the world through their eyes should inform our teaching and our care. We aim for the children at Holmewood to have a generosity of spirit and empathy and to understand the importance of the values of self belief, aspiration and kindness. In all that we do, our aim is to work closely with parents, guardians and the children themselves.

We are excited by the curiosity and thirst for learning that each child, regardless of their ability, naturally displays. We work hard to allow each child to ask why, to query and to have the time to develop their thoughts into fresh discoveries and innovations and, in doing so, overcome the challenges faced. The end result is the celebration of learning – a reward in its own right!

The wonderful environment and outstanding facilities provide a strong framework upon which the ethos of ‘allowing children to be children’ can be achieved. Childhood is full of exciting new experiences which we, as parents and teachers relive, through the eyes and laughter of our children.

The relationship between home and school is of fundamental importance in ensuring every child is surrounded by the love, care and guidance which they require as they make their way through their educational journey. In short, this partnership allows our children to enjoy the most important journey of all; childhood.

It is an absolute privilege to be the Headmaster of this wonderful school community, a community where I truly believe any child can succeed – come and see for yourself.

We look forward to meeting you!

Scott Carnochan – Headmaster
