The Holme CofE Primary School, Headley

The Holme CofE Primary School was the first school to join the Good Shepherd Trust (converted 1/09/13) and its journey since then is one of which it is justifiably proud.

Smaller than average in size, with around 120 pupils, The Holme is not afraid to think big and has demonstrated great determination to become an outstanding school.

Strong leadership, improved teaching, good pupil behaviour and attitudes to learning have seen the school leave special measures and make remarkable progress.

Tucked away in Headley, Bordon, Hants, on the edge of the diocese the school makes the most of its rural location with Forest School built into a rich and varied curriculum. Each topic studied has a WOW factor built into it such as a trip, a visitor or a hands-on experience to help capture the children's imaginations.

In accordance with its motto 'Our values are our strengths' the academy follows a Values-based Education programme, emphasising the importance of looking inwards, outwards and upwards. It has strengthened its links with All Saints' Church and was praised for its ‘highly inclusive’ community and values in a church schools’ inspection in April 2016 when it was judged ‘good’.

Pupils' three-word summaries:

'full of happiness'
'learning every day'
'learning from mistakes'
