I am delighted to welcome you to Holmwood House School and Nursery, where I believe we provide a truly inspiring learning environment and boundless opportunities for discovery and exploration, that enables our pupils to develop their individuality, confidence and tenacity.
At Holmwood House, we aim to instil in each child a lifelong curiosity and love of learning through a broad, rigorous and enriching curriculum that is anchored in our learning philosophy; The 5Rs. The learning journey starts in our Nursery, located in an idyllic woodland location near Great Horkesley, where children as young as 6 months can join and stay until the age of 4. From the age of 3 children join the Early Years, Pre-Prep and Prep school at our main location in Lexden, Colchester, which occupies over 25 acres of beautiful grounds.
Laetatus Sum or ‘I am glad’ is our school motto and the guiding principle of everything we do at Holmwood House. We firmly believe that providing a happy learning environment is the key to each child’s progress and success. This underpinning core value is evident through our strong sense of community amongst parents, pupils and staff.
