School Projects and Activities

School Projects as a result of the generosity of parents and the many events attended, in the school years 2015-2016 and 2016-2017,  the Friends of Holmewood has been able to invest over £25,000 in equipment for the school, which could not be provided through the normal school budget.
Funding rounds take place, where the staff are able to put proposals forward for funding. The aim is always invest where we can add value to the lives of the children throughout the school – ranging from educational tools, through activities/clubs, to play and pure fun for the children.
