Following the Government’s most recent Covid-19 update on Sunday 10th May it is important to note that there are no immediate changes in the education or child care provision made by schools.
Therefore, schools will continue to provide distance learning support for students and child care for Key Workers who have provided 24 hours notice of their intention to use the child care facility.
As you will be aware, the government has announced the expectation that Secondary schools will begin a phased transition to school based learning during Term 6 for selected Year Groups.
We are working closely with the Local Authorities and the Department For Education to ensure the most effective and safe return to school for students and staff. We will be in contact you shortly to update you on our plans. Please continue to check your mailboxes and this website for updates. Thank you for your continued support.

In the meantime, we would encourage anyone who still wishes to appeal to do so. Further advice will be provided to all appellants as soon as it is available. All admission appeal forms should be emailed to email@example.com. Please do not bring them into school.
Free School Meals
Following on from the recent government announcement that the free school meal (FSM) e-vouchers, we have registered all students entitled to FSM with the DfE provider who will be distributing the e-vouchers using the email address you have provided to the school. We have not been advised when the first voucher will be sent, but any delay will not affect your entitlement. If you requested a printed voucher, these will follow on once we have received them but are subject to postal delays at present. Any queries, please use the following link:
Selected Holcombe students participated in the Medway School Games Badminton competition at Medway Park on Thursday 14th November.
Both the Key Stage 3 and 4 ‘B’ teams finished in a very respectable 5th place out of 10 overall, whilst both the Key Stage 3 and 4 ‘A’ teams won their respective competitions and qualified to represent Medway at the Kent school games final in February.
The Kent School Games Badminton Finals were held on Thursday 6th February, also at Medway Park. Sixteen Holcombe students from Years 8-11 represented their school at this event.
Each of the Holcombe teams were pitted against some of the best badminton players in the county, representing some of the sporting powerhouse schools. After a full afternoon of games, where each student represented Holcombe magnificently, the Key Stage 3 team finished in a very respectable fifth place out of twelve, whilst the Key Stage 4 team earned themselves a place on the podium by winning Bronze.
Congratulations to all students involved.
