Open Evening

and Parent Tours

Virtual Open Evening 1st October 2020

Welcome to The Holt

We are delighted that you are considering The Holt School for your daughter and thank you for joining The Holt’s first virtual open evening since 1931. This is one for the archives!

The Holt School opened in 1931 from humble beginnings, with 23 students, 3 teachers, 1 headteacher and a dog called Cinner and has now grown to 1393 students and 145 staff and we are proud of the school’s continued reputation for high standards and traditions.

Our students embrace and contribute to the life of the school, both through their learning and by taking part in our extensive range of enrichment and leadership activities. In August, we celebrated another year of outstanding results at GCSE and A Level. This high performance reflects the continuing dedication of our teachers, our pastoral support and our strong partnerships with parents to enable every student to achieve their very best both academically and by building good character.

This virtual event is for you and your daughter to gain an insight into the life of our school. We recognise that this year is not quite the same as in previous years and certainly, our Year 11 prefects will miss taking you on a live tour. Our enthusiastic staff will also miss engaging with you face to face, as they would have loved to have shared with you numerous demonstrations, activities and displays of resources.

However, we have put together a virtual experience that we hope you will enjoy all the same.

The live presentation will commence at 6pm where you will hear from us, our Head girl, one of her deputies and finally from two of our new Year 7 students. They will talk to you about their experiences as a student at The Holt.

Please click on the link below to join the Virtual Open Evening live presentation: This event has now ended please click here to view the presentation slides.

Following the talk, you will be able to visit all the departments through the subject links below. Each department has prepared a short video clip to give you a flavour of what they are about and what you can expect next year.

We hope you find this virtual tour informative and that you can imagine what it feels like to be a student here.

Our full prospectus can be found on our school website https://www.holtschool.co.uk/about-us/prospectus/

We wish you enjoyable clicking……..

Co-Headteachers
