Welcome to Holly Lodge
At Holly Lodge, we strive for excellence in everything we do and have a clear vision of what we are here to achieve. Our young people are well cared for and every effort is made to promote their educational and personal development.
We also strive to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We stress the total development of each child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical.
Once again, despite the volatility in GCSE results nationally, Holly lodge has yet again raised many of its headline figures in 2016. 5 A*-C including English and Maths, Progress 8 and Attainment 8 figures.
Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are two measures that schools will be judged against from this year. They are designed to encourage schools to offer a broad and balanced curriculum at KS4.
Progress 8 is based on students’ progress measured across eight subjects:
- Three other English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages).
Three further subjects, which can be from the range of EBacc subjects, or can be any other GCSE or approved, high-value arts, academic, or vocational qualification.
We have had excellent performances from both individual pupils and across all subject areas. This represents another great set of results for Holly Lodge and we would like to congratulate students and staff for their exceptional efforts and parents for their continued support.
