Holmwood School’s homepage is bright and welcoming, yet simple and comprehensive. The happiness and creativity of the school is reflected throughout the site, making it a great online showcase.

The 10 Reasons to Choose Us section is a fantastic way for prospective parents of the school to understand what Holmwood can offer them. It also links to the Ofsted report, so that parents can see just how the school perform.

If you’ve never visited Holmwood school the Virtual Tour and Pictures of Our School sections are a fantastic way to get a glimpse into the everyday life of the school. These pages paint a picture for potential parents in regards to the school itself. It shows the colourful, safe and fun environment that the school provides.

Sometimes grades and exam results can be hard to understand. In the Attainment section this breaks down what each level means, as well as explaining what SATs are. Furthermore, the results from the school are also shown and are broken down by subject and level attained.

The class page section is great for parents to see what their child is doing, especially as it’s broken down by each group or class. For example the Rabbits section shows work the students have done for art, design and technology, literacy and numeracy. Not only does each class page provide an example picture but a brief description about what the children have learnt or skill that they have acquired.
