Mike Jones, Holmer Green Senior School Headteacher gives an update

At Holmer Green Senior School we are enjoying huge success with examination results at 70% at GCSE and a Sixth Form that has doubled in size over the past three years.  We set our expectations sky high, “Achievement and Opportunity for all”, and believe every single one of our children can attain good GCSE results.  Those of the highest ability are able to attain as well as their peers at Grammar schools and those who arrive with low attainment at Primary school are able to leave with a place secured on a high quality vocational programme.


This year our most able Sixth Formers are set to gain A or B grades across all their subjects and as a result we have applicants to Oxford colleges as well as top Russell Group universities such as Warwick and Bristol.  We have set up a vocational skills centre to teach construction and work based skills and have Year 11 students ready to progress to apprenticeships on leaving us this summer.


This success and the breadth of our provision are passionately supported by our parents who support us through our staff, parent and pupil partnership programme.  Every child in their examination year has a meeting with their parents and a senior leader to explore a wide range of strategies to ensure the best performance in every subject.


Positive, respectful and supportive relationships between pupils are of course another vital factor and we take great pride in the harmonious culture at HGSS.  Year 10 pupils have already volunteered and been trained to mentor our new Year 7 pupils from September.  Our anti bullying committee made up of Year 11 and Sixth Form students are on hand to offer support every break and lunchtime and run a series of inspirational assemblies throughout the school year.


It was a pleasure to invite Rafiq Raja to visit and enjoy a tour of our school last term.  We want to share our success with all parents, from all backgrounds and to ensure that, as an inclusive school, the needs and concerns of every child and parent are met.  Parental expectation is at the heart of any school’s success.  It certainly is at HGSS.  I look forward to keeping you all updated through future MPA publications and hopefully, welcoming many of you to HGSS.
