I am writing to inform you that the school will be closed to most students for the half term break from Monday 27th October to Friday 31st October.
A number of students will be invited into school for special study support sessions which have been arranged to take place during the holiday.
If your child is to be invited you will shortly be receiving a separate letter informing you of the dates and times of these sessions.
All students will be expected to return to Holyhead for a prompt start to lessons at 8.45am on Monday 3rd November.
Thank you for your continued support.
Many congratulations to Isabelle Monteiro on gaining a place to read History at St. Catherine’s College, University of Oxford, for October 2014. All at Holyhead are delighted and very proud. Truly wonderful news!

The programme includes a series of workshops taking place across the Family with reciprocal visits with 10 students from each of the Academies. The workshops will run in conjunction with RSA Fellows who wish to get involved with the young people within the RSA Family.Read more: Year 8 team of students working with the RSA at Tipton
