Coronavirus Updates

For any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility, and who subsequently becomes unable to provide childcare at home –  you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing office@newhorizonschildrensacademy.org.uk or calling 0333 602115 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.  Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.

Update 03.04.20: Please see here for letter to Year 11 and Year 13, or here for a letter to parents of students in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12.

For recent letters sent home about Coronavirus, please see here.

Admissions 2020/21

We are currently awaiting further advice from the Department for Education about how appeal deadlines may be affected by the current COVID-19 restrictions on schools. 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 admissions@holcombegrammar.org.uk. Please do not bring them into school.
