Welcome to Holywell ETNS!

On behalf of the community of Holywell ETNS I would like to welcome you to our wonderful school. I was appointed Principal of Holywell ETNS in June 2010 and we opened in September that year with 21 pupils and three staff members. Today we have over 60 staff members and 600 pupils. The school is housed in a beautiful state of the art building consisting of a 24 classroom school with three special classes for children with autism.

We also have the use of a spacious sports hall, which we share with Holywell Community Centre.

Why should you enrol your child in our school?

Holywell ETNS is a fully inclusive school.The Educate Together idea is simple: educate children in an all-inclusive environment, with respect for all, irrespective of gender, religion, physical ability, ethnic or social background. All children are cherished. The ethos of the school is the “characteristic spirit or attitudes” of our community. This distinctive spirit that is felt, witnessed, embraced and developed in school.

The centre of all interactions and considerations within the school is the child. Encouraging and supporting our schoolchildren’s safe, healthy and happy development is our shared priority. We hold all children, staff, parents and guardians as equally respected and valued members in our school community. All members share responsibility for the life, spirit and on-going development of our school.

We would be delighted for you to visit and join our school and wish all our students and families the very best for the new school year.
