Holmes House Overview

In Holmes house we aim to build a community spirit upon the foundations of RESPECT, RESILIENCE, RESPONSIBILITY and RESOURCEFULNESS. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves in order that they gain confidence and become active citizens, willing to help and support those around them.

Kelly Holmes is Double Gold Olympic Champion in the 800m and 1500m, on top of Commonwealth Gold and European silver. She balanced her training with a successful career in the army, and has now set up the DKH Legacy Trust. Through her trust’s work Kelly’s mission is to get young lives that may have taken the wrong path back on track. Across the programme athletes inspire, motivate and support young people. They engage, enable and empower them to go on to make positive changes in their own lives.
