Academic Results

Academic Achievement

Due to the age of the pupils at Holmewood House (Pre-Nursery to Year 8) there are no  Public Exam results to  publish. Neither does the school enter the children for the SAT (standard assessment tests).

The measure of academic success can be made  by the success rate of children passing selective exams to Grammar Schools and to Senior Independent schools.

In 2016/17 all Year 8 children successfully passed their exams to permit them to move on to Year 9 at the school of their first choice, either via an academic scholarship exam process or via the Common Entrance examination process.
