New Parents

We are delighted to welcome you to Holly Lodge.


Is your child due to start school in September 2021?

Although we normally love to welcome visits to our school in person, during these unprecedented times, we are currently unable to offer our usual Parent Tours to prospective families who are looking for school places in September 2021. Instead, we will be running smaller "Meet the Head" sessions, see below for details.  Please do head to the "Explore our Academy" page to see a virtual tour of our school by the Head Teacher, Mrs Dancer.

We understand this can be a daunting process for parents, especially those who are going through this process for the first time. We would encourage you to look at the different sections across the website, as they contain a wealth of useful information. You are of course welcome to contact us with any specific enquiries.


We are running "Meet the Head" sessions in October, November and December. The dates are as follows:   

Tuesday 20th October 3.45pm and 4.15pm 
Tuesday 3rd November 3.45pm and 4.15pm
Thursday 19th November 3.45pm and 4.15pm CANCELLED
Tuesday 1st Dec 3.45pm and 4.15pm CANCELLED


UPDATE 01/11/20

*Due to the latest Government announcement of lockdown running from 5th November to 3rd December 2020, we have had to cancel Meet the Head sessions that were scheduled during this time. If you are interested in joining a future Meet the Head session, please call or email us to register your interest. We will then contact you if/when we are able to run sessions later in December, once lockdown has ended.*


This is an opportunity to meet the head teacher, to ask any questions and tour the outside of the school. A maximum of 5 parents will be allowed on each tour. This is to ensure we adhere to the current "rule of 6" Covid-19 guidance. Unfortunately, due to limited spaces for each session, we are unable to invite children. We also request that only one parent attends from each family. Parents must book in advance and leave contact details for track and trace. Upon arrival, parents must confirm that they do not have any Covid-19 symptoms and maintain a 2m distance from other parents. Parents should arrive no more than 5 minutes before the booked tour and will be met at the school gate by the head teacher.

Please note that the meetings are subject to change, depending on the latest Government Covid-19 guidance. 


If you would like to book a place on one of our "Meet the Head" sessions, please call the school office on 01252 548390 or email
