New Secondary School
Planning permission was granted for the new secondary school on the Bannerdale site during the Easter Holidays and the building works will be starting later in the summer. Mercia Learning Trust are the sponsor and the new school will be called ‘Mercia School’.
Easter Hat Competition
Thank you for helping your children make such lovely hats. We were very impressed by all the inventive ideas. The competition was judged by Mrs Tyrrell and Mrs Watterson, who had a very difficult job.
Congratulations to all the prize winners
Green Day
Friday 28 April is Green Day for the EYFS and Y1. Children can wear green clothes to school instead of uniform. They will be taking part in planting in the outdoor learning areas and getting them ready for the summer. EYFS and Y1 parents and carers are welcome to drop in from 1.30 - 2.30pm to join in with Green Day. (Y2 are on a trip.)
KS1 Picnic Time
Taylor Shaw, our school dinner provider, will be providing paper ‘grab bags’ for children who order sandwiches, so that they can eat them outside when the weather is fine.
The Summer Fair is on its way!
The joint Holt House and Carterknowle Summer Fair is on Friday 7 July 2.30-5.30pm, here at Holt House. More details will follow in the next few weeks.

Holt House is awarded the Silver Travel Award.
