Community Ethos

At the Holmesdale School we are building a place where everyone is included and where each person can make a positive contribution.

We believe this is done through our Community based system. As students arrive they are placed in to one of four communities:

• Challenger
• Enterprise
• Endeavour
• Discovery

Each community has a Leader and a Student Support Manager (SSM) so students and parents know who to contact if they need to.

Within each community there are seven tutor groups which include students from every year group. We aim to develop our young people into citizens who are aware of their rights and responsibilities towards each other so that they are able to build a better future for all of us.

We believe our tutor group system supports this aim – where the older students act as mentors and role models for the younger students – where the younger students know they have many others to ask for advice.

We are building Communities here at Holmesdale to ensure every person feels supported to achieve their very best.
