Frederick Holmes School


Frederick Holmes School is an all age community special school for pupils with severe physical disabilities and those with profound and multiple needs. It is a school where all children are valued and all staff work extremely hard to deliver an inspirational curriculum in a supportive and caring environment. We welcome children and their parents and carers into a friendly hardworking school where respect for others, positive attitudes and independence are nurtured and each child is given the opportunity to flourish and reach their potential.

The Frederick Holmes School Vision

We will provide a nurturing, inspiring, dynamic and innovative provision, where pupils are actively engaged in learning for life. We will develop our vision through Building Schools for the Future by:

Totally transforming our curriculum and learning environment for our very complex children in the Foundation Stage.

The creation of new teaching and learning strategies that are based on research and investigation and are inquiry based in meeting the needs of our changing population. This will involve developing a creative curriculum, the use of cutting edge technology and investigating personalised learning styles

Personalised pathways for students 14-19, which offer new experiences, enrichment and opportunities for vocational learning, enterprise and accreditation

Introducing vocational learning, enterprise, exciting and engaging accreditation and enrichment which is personalised to each young person’s life plans for students aged 19-25
