As a member of the University of Brighton Academies Trust, our vision is to be a centre of excellence in education, where every student is given the support they need to achieve their dreams. We believe that by working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of our students, and we are committed to delivering excellence in everything we do.

Our four Trust-wide values are:

Achieving Ambitions is about inspiring our people to be the best they can be, celebrating our success, dreaming big, and empowering our children to lead fulfilling lives. By doing this, we can transform lives and broaden horizons, while encouraging a culture of sustainability.

Working Together means we can create a vibrant, inclusive community that’s open and honest and shares ideas and best practices. We support and challenge each other to deliver great service and continually encourage collaboration and strong partnerships.

Delivering Excellence ensures we are resilient and determined and develop a creative flag-ship curriculum for all our children delivered through excellent teaching and learning. Sharing expertise and knowledge, exploring possibilities, rewarding innovation, and challenging and motivating our children and staff to have high expectations and aspirations are all at the heart of this value.

Nurturing Potential, last but not least, is focusing on treating others as we wish to be treated and empowering children and staff to flourish. From this, we attract and retain staff through flexible structures and career pathways and offer children and staff wellbeing support.

As a Trust, our academies all share a belief that education transforms lives and creates brighter futures.

At Holmbush, we have high expectations of every child and aim to provide outstanding, creative learning journeys and provide a happy, safe and secure environment in which the children are able to build on progress and become good citizens. We develop and model growth mindset in everyone. We do everything with:

  • Respect
  • Resilience
  • Reflection 
  • Empathy
