Headteacher’s Welcome


On behalf of the pupils, staff, parents and governors I would like to welcome you to the Holymead Primary website.

Holymead is a thriving, happy school where everyone is valued, respected and committed to our vision ‘Nurture, Inspire, Achieve’. 

We aim to provide a stimulating education that develops the needs and talents of all children whatever their starting points and abilities.

We have a strong focus on English and Maths to ensure children have the skills to access the curriculum and achieve as life-long learners.  As well as this, we value the arts, sciences and sport and plan opportunities for children to get involved in a variety of events and performances during their time here. 

In addition to a broad and balanced curriculum we offer a wide range of out of school activities to challenge children and keep them engaged, including participation in local, city-wide and national events.

We invite you to come and visit our school where we believe you will be impressed by our high expectations, the quality of teaching, our vibrant learning environment and our motivated and exceptionally well behaved pupils.

To apply for a place at Holymead Primary School

Bristol City Council are responsible for the entire admissions process. Our school admin team will be able to advise you on who to contact and when. However, please be aware that we have no influence over how places are allocated.

In order to meet the needs of the children already on roll, teaching and learning spaces need to be used flexibly and for a variety of purposes. Therefore Holymead Primary School Governors have determined that the maximum class size will be 30 children to enable the most effective teaching and learning to take place.
