What the school says...

Set in idyllic surroundings in the picturesque village of Holbeton, a mile from Mothecombe Beach, we are a happy village school committed to excellence in all spheres of life. Holbeton is an inclusive and aspirational school with children, staff, parents and Governors who are enthusiastic, energetic, imaginative and highly motivated. />
Holbeton Primary School has an excellent reputation:

For academic success the 2012 results place the school in the top 1% of Primary Schools in England for value added score (102.6), which measures how much progress each child has made whilst at the school. (In Maths the value added score was 103.5!)

Across a whole range of activities, including sport, music, drama and art.

With parents for whom the ethos and culture of the school is a major attraction a caring environment, where all are treated with respect, where children can learn and grow in safety. (50% bring their children to Holbeton School from out of area, a sign of the schools standing),

We have a strong emphasis on the basics of Literacy and Numeracy which in turn allows the pupils to develop their scientific thinking and historical/geographical knowledge.

Together we will provide a secure, stimulating and healthy environment in which we can bring out the best in everyone, in everything they do. ...Read more
