Mrs Boyle

Holmes College Leader

Welcome to Holmes College.

Holmes College’s main aim is to make sure that all members feel part of our Holmes community within school. We want you to feel happy and secure in your school life so that you can achieve your full potential, whilst experiencing lots of new opportunities and fun along the way.

We pride ourselves on our caring and supportive attitude both towards one another and in the wider community. This has been reflected in Holmes College fundraising activities which, over the last few years, has raised several thousand pounds for various charities.

Holmes College Leader is Mrs Boyle who is on hand to provide pastoral care, advice and guidance through out the school day. We also have a dedicated team of Form Tutors who will take care of you and support you throughout your time here.

Our college is named in honour of the athlete Dame Kelly Holmes. She is a lady who has achieved fantastic results in her lifetime. Her philosophy and beliefs serve as an inspiration for Holmes students:

  • Direction – Goal setting
  • Intensity – Lots of effort
  • Persistence – Keeping at it
  • Continuity – Motivation over many years
  • Performance – always giving 100%

These qualities are summed up in our college motto:

Believe to Achieve

This is something actively supported and encouraged by the Holmes team. There are many activities and competitions you can be involved in, including sporting events, art competitions , talent shows and quizzes to name but a few.

We look forward to you being part of Holmes College.
