Open Evening

and Parent Tours

Virtual Open Evening 7th October 2021

Welcome to The Holt

We are delighted that you are considering The Holt School for your daughter and thank you for visiting us this evening.

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 1254 students and over 150 staff and we are proud of the school’s continued reputation for being forward looking and ambitious whilst at the same time upholding traditional values and high standards.

In August, we celebrated another year of outstanding examination results at GCSE and A Level that places us once again in the top 10% of all schools for value added nationally. This is through our excellent teaching, rich learning opportunities, consistent and rigorous learning culture, and overall student wellbeing and development. Our aim is for our students:

  • To be self-confident
  • To build strong relationships
  • To have high aspirations
  • To achieve their very best

So that they leave us prepared for responsible adulthood taking with them the good character of stoicism, gratitude and humility that will impact positively on their own lives and those of others to make for better world.

This virtual event is for you and your daughter to gain an insight into the life of our school. We recognise that this is not quite the same as an in-person event 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 Co Headteachers presentation will be available from 3.30pm 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.

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. Please note that due to the short notice the videos are from last year’s Open Evening.

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……..
