In line with most secondary schools in Birmingham, Holyhead will be holding ‘New Intake Day’ on Wednesday 1st July 2015.
Students currently in Year 6 who are due to begin their education at Holyhead in September will visit the school for the day to help them to get accustomed to student life here.
We aim to provide all new students with a very positive experience of the school and many special activities are currently being prepared.
In order to free up staff and facilities we are proposing that Year 7 students remain at home on the day. Your co-operation with this request is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your continued support.
Holyhead is a school where staff, parents/carers, students and governors work together to provide Handsworth with a school that the community can take pride in. We all share an unshakeable belief in everyone’s capacity to learn. Our achievements in the past ten years have been exceptional and we continue to work hard to develop Holyhead as a ‘learning community’ where everyone is ‘engaged, educated and enabled’ and helped to reach their full potential. Our practice is dedicated to encouraging ‘learning without limits’.Read more: Welcome to Holyhead
