Achievement

We want all our young people to be successful at Holmesdale, this is not just about exam results, it is about all of them finding a successful transition into Sixth Form, college, training, university or the world of employment and being happy and successful citizens.

Exam results are an essential part of a young person’s passport into the next stage though and we are delighted this year to be celebrating huge improvements in our exam results.
