Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to the website of Holywell Primary and Nursery School

We enjoyed a highly successful year in 2013/14 and were very pleased with the outcome of our Ofsted inspection in March, which highlighted the school’s many strengths.

Our aim though is to keep improving.  We want teaching at Holywell to be of the highest quality, and we want to develop a rich curriculum that inspires and enthuses our children.  At the heart of our philosophy must be the principle that all of our pupils should fulfil their potential and develop a love of learning.

It is also important that we work in partnership with parents as this will underpin our success.

Our new website will provide the opportunity to keep you updated on the many developments in school, and I am sure the year ahead will, again, be a successful and exciting one.
