'I know they say good schools make good communities, but the truth of the matter is good communities make good schools' ~ Robert McClure


Thank you for visiting the Holmgate Primary School website and welcome back to all our children and families after what I hope was an enjoyable summer break. We are all looking forward to the term ahead which is jam-packed with exciting events and celebrations, such as sports trips, Harvest Festival and Christmas performances...the list is endless!

Please do not hesitate to contact myself, or Mrs Guy, on the gate in a morning if you have a query, an issue or you just want a chat. We really are here to help.  You can, of course, call the office on 01246 862270 to speak to us, if you prefer.

Watch the video below to hear some of the wonderful things our children said about our amazing team members.
