Welcome back to the new term. There have been some major improvements at Holly House over the summer. Urgent repairs to the roof, new boilers for new block and the creation of more car-parking spaces have been undertaken. Seven new pupils are in transition into Holly House replacing the Seven that have made a successful transition out. More than half of last year’s leavers have moved back into main-stream secondary schools. The others have places in Support Centers or with Alternative Provision. I wish them every success.
URGENT NEWS – Mrs Di Spence started working at Holly House in 1993. She prepared meals for pupils and staff for 23 years, retiring on health grounds in 2016. It is with great sadness that I report her passing last weekend. As a mark of respect and to allow staff to attend her funeral, School will close at 1pm on Tuesday 26th September. If anyone would like more information, please contact me through the main school office in the usual way.
