The Holt School
About this Organisation
The Holt School is an “outstanding” (OFSTED June 2008) seven-form entry converter academy for girls aged between 11 and 16 and with a co-educational Sixth Form. It serves the market town of Wokingham and surrounding villages. The Holt is one of 4 secondary schools in Wokingham town, one of which is a boys’ school and the other 2 are mixed. Wokingham Borough Council is the local authority with whom the school works closely. The original school numbered 23 but there are now 1245 pupils, 216 of whom are in the sixth form. 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 extending to 13 acres, 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.
