The Holt is a popular and oversubscribed 11-16 girls and 16-18 co-ed comprehensive school, which converted to academy status in July 2011. The school was judged ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2008; there are 1245 on roll (216 in the Sixth Form) and we have a record of academic success with 89% of students achieve 5 or more standard passes including English and Maths.
A Learning Support Specialist is required to support students with special needs in mainstream classes and on a 1:1 basis.
