Welcome from the Headteacher - Mr Ed Hillyard
I welcome you to the Holmer Green Senior School (HGSS) website. Our mission is to ensure all students become the best possible versions of themselves in everyway. HGSS is an 11 – 18 academy situated in Holmer Green Village. We are a non-selective, comprehensive school in a selective county. We pride ourselves on excellence and the impact we have on shaping student character.
Results this summer have been strong with 77% of students achieving grades 4+ in English and Maths and 58% achieving grades 5+, both of which are significantly above national averages. The Sixth Form is equally successful with the average A Level grade being ‘B’, but most importantly students have gained great destinations, including: full scholarships to American universities, top end apprenticeships and degree courses such as Medicine and Law. Students and parents who are considering HGSS, or teachers who are interested in working with us, should find our website informative and helpful in your decision making progress.
Our Sixth Form is a vibrant and high performing part of the school. Students who wish to join, and in particular our year 11 students, should look at the Sixth Form pages to see what courses we have on offer and our enrichment that makes us stand out.
A distinctive feature of HGSS is our partnership work with parents and students. Our staff work incredibly hard at helping to transform the lives of HGSS students and go out of their way to ensure that they know each student as an individual in a nurturing environment.
I hope clicking through our website you will get a tangible feel for our ‘Work Hard, Be Kind, Have Passion’ attitude. Details of our curriculum, pastoral support, significant enrichment experiences, newsletters, prospectus and current staff vacancies can all be found on our website. Prospective parents and students should visit our admissions pages for details of how to apply.
