About Us

Welcome

Holmbush Primary Academy provides a safe, attractive and stimulating learning environment for over 200 pupils ages 4 to 11.

The classrooms are extremely well resourced; light, bright and airy and much larger than average sized primary classrooms.

We have excellent ICT provision with a number of networked computers in every room and access to a wide variety of portable computers, ipads, Learn pads, cameras, microphones, webcams and other equipment that enriches our curriculum. We have a fantastic library offering a huge selection of books which the children can borrow to read at home.

We have a dedicated modern kitchen area where children can learn how to prepare food. We have a large multipurpose hall which we use for dance, games and gymnastics. We have an attractive outside space with a variety of equipment, for the children to improve their physical development, around our playground.

We also have an outside classroom and a small conservation woodland. Every classroom opens up directly onto the outside areas and we frequently make use of this resource in our lessons.
