Joining Instructions for Novi
We send a package of joining information to parents of all incoming new pupils. This will tell you which class and House your child will be in and the name of your child’s form teacher and Housemaster/mistress.
The pack will include:
- A Welcome Book with general information (Welcome to the Pre-Preparatory Department or Welcome to the Preparatory Department) to provide you with all the information you need for your child’s first weeks at Holmewood.
- A uniform list appropriate to your child’s age and details of how to contact the school shop to make an appointment for a uniform fitting. Simmonds of Tunbridge Wells have a shop on the school premises where parents can purchase all items of school uniform and sports kit for the Pre-Prep and Prep schools. For entry into Holmewood in September, appointments can be made with the school shop throughout the summer. Online shopping is also available through the Simmonds website www.simmond-ltd.com.
- Details of fees; school holidays; the minibus service, Swim School etc.
- Various forms for you to complete and return to the school.
For entry in September, we send this package out at the end of the Summer term as:
i. we are unable to allocate Houses until we have a definitive list of Novi joining us
ii. there are often last-minute changes to class lists
If you have any questions before receiving your package of joining information, please do not hesitate to call Mrs Connie Cherrett, Registrar, on 01892 860006 (email firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs Napleton, Pre-Prep Secretary, on 01892 860005 (email email@example.com).
"Pupils’ skills, knowledge and understanding are developed to an excellent and sometimes exceptional level."
