Holmleigh Park High School

Why work at HP

At Holmleigh Park, we value our staff. Our staff are experts in their field, and we work hard to ensure that every minute of their time is purposeful. Here's an insight into what we do at Holmleigh Park:

What We Do What We Don't Do
Fully resourced curriculum for KS3-4 No disruption permitted in lessons
Clear, sensible teaching based on Rosenshine. We prioritise high quality modelling and regular deliberate practice. No wasted time dealing with uniform or equipment - it's checked at the start of every day
A clear approach to CPD, focusing on actionable steps which staff can implement immediately No fads or sudden new initiatives - we have a School Improvement Plan and we stick to it!
Regular feedback for all staff (including the Headteacher!) No individual lesson plans
Visualisers and desktop computers in every classroom - simple IT that just works! No gimmicks - card sorts, diamond 9s, differentiated lesson objectives etc
Centralised online homework for KS3 and 4 No big folders of nothing - we only ask for paperwork or data if we're actually going to use it
A large and growing Sixth Form offering a wide variety of courses No wasted hours of marking - we prioritise whole class feedback
15 minutes from the Cotswolds, and commutable from Cheltenham, Bristol and Cardiff No stagnancy or complacency - we are relentlessly ambitious and always looking to improve
