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 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.

110 Shoeboxes

110 Shoeboxes

We are pleased to announce that we have received a whopping 110 shoeboxes donated to us for this year’s Shoebox Appeal, as well as a grand total of £590 in cash donations!

Holcombe Grammar School joins thousands of schools throughout the country in supporting Operation Christmas Child. This appeal, run by the charity Samaritan’s Purse, will help children affected by poverty around the world, bringing them a little gift of joy this Christmas. To date the appeal has reached more than 157 million children in over 160 countries. This was our fourth year supporting the appeal.

We would like to say a massive thank you to our students, as well as to generous members of the public, for their kind donations to this fantastic cause. Please see our confirmed total here.
