I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to the Holmewood House website. Whether you are currently or previously associated with the school, a prospective parent or curious visitor, I assure you that this is a most wonderful school bursting with enthusiastic, happy and fulfilled children who are inspired by an exceptional team of dedicated professionals whose sole purpose it is to provide the best prep school experience possible.
My mission is to lead the school through the next decade ensuring that the children receive the best opportunities and the best education appropriate to their talents, interests and abilities.
A prep school education should be broad, supportive and nurturing as well as exciting, stimulating, energising and, at certain times and in the right way, challenging. Holmewood is a Preparatory School and its job is to do exactly that; prepare children for their senior school education and indeed for life beyond.
Personalities develop at an early age and experiences during childhood often remain etched in minds forever. It is crucial, therefore, that the Holmewood experience strikes the right balance between nurturing the children and encouraging them forward. In the right environment children will strive for success time and time again in the knowledge that success is attainable and that nobody is going to think less of them if they do not achieve their goal at the first attempt every time.
I am confident that Holmewood House is the right environment and I invite you to visit the school to see our wonderful children and staff in action.
