About The Holt School
The Holt is an “Outstanding” (OFSTED June 2008) girls’ comprehensive school with an eighth form entry in the main school and a co-educational sixth form making a total roll of 1253 The Holt is one of 11 secondary schools in Wokingham town.
The school, situated on the western side of the town, was founded in 1931. The original school was an old Dower House dating from 1648. This house is now used chiefly for administrative purposes. The shrubbery and gardens, together with playing fields extend to 13 acres and form a pleasant setting for the school.
The Holt maintains a number of traditions and extols traditional values whilst at the same time embracing change. As well as the broad and balanced formal curriculum, students at The Holt enjoy a rich and varied extra-curricular programme. We are very fortunate to have an extremely talented and hardworking staff all of whom are committed to providing the best possible education both in and outside of the classroom. Teaching and support staff give generously of their time to provide a wide range of enrichment activities. As a school with a global outlook, we actively encourage all our students to step outside “the Wokingham bubble” and experience other cultures through exchanges, trips and expeditions. Relationships between staff and students are excellent and across the whole school community there is an atmosphere of mutual respect.
