From the Headmaster….

Posted: 29th April 2019

Dear Parents

Welcome back to what everyone regards as the best term at Holmwood. We have been treated to a glimpse of summer and very much hope to see more of it!

Our Les Ambassadeurs course over the break was a great success and my thanks to Madame Mookherjee and her team for giving our children such a great experience both on site and at Colchester Castle and Zoo. Our Cricket Course was also well-attended. The children involved benefited from a very productive three days under the guidance of Mr Earley and his team of coaches, including several returning Holmwoodians. My thanks to them. 

The children have returned with great energy and have already been treated to an exciting introduction to Space Week. Mr Kershaw is leading from the front and it looks like being an amazing celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing. 

I look forward to seeing many of you at the School Development Plan talk on Tuesday next week at 6.45pm. Drinks will be available beforehand. Please respond to the email regarding childcare for prep school children.

With best wishes

Alexander Mitchell
