Our school facilities
Holywell Primary School was opened in 1968 (please see The History of Holywell) and provides really good facilities for 420 children.
The school is loosely based on a honeycomb shape, which makes for very interestingly shaped classrooms (14) and winding corridors!
We are very fortunate to have a well-equipped cookery area, technology and art areas, a multifunctional suite, withdrawal rooms for small group work and counselling activities, a kiln room, a music room for music lessons, two halls which can be merged to make one very large hall, a really well resourced school library and a welcoming office and reception area.
In 2016 our new Foundation Stage unit was opened, which means that all 60 of our Foundation Stage pupils can be educated in the same space, this is really well equipped and has access to great outdoor space to extend pupil learning. We also have our own kitchens on site, cooking high quality, nutritious food at lunchtimes for our children.
Outside the school we have extensive grounds, including a very large school field with a pavilion for pupils to change in, we have three playgrounds, a school garden for cl asses to use and a maze There are sun shelters on both the main playgrounds, a ‘Zone’ for extended play activities at lunchtime, a pirate ship for the younger children and a very long trim trail which the children enjoy playing on, we even have our own school wood for outdoor learning.
