Holt VC Primary School

Secondary Schools

In the September following their 11th birthday, children transfer to the local comprehensive schools.

The village of Holt falls within the catchment area for two secondary schools, St. Laurence School in Bradford on Avon and John of Gaunt in Trowbridge. On occasions individual children have attended schools outside of this area, including secondary schools in Bath and Corsham. The vast majority of our children in recent years have attended St. Laurence School.

We have well-established programmes of visits which support the transition into secondary education for both children and parents. These currently include:

  • Year 5 taster days
  • Year 6 transition days
  • Visits by Link Year 6/7 transition teachers
  • Drama workshops
  • Joint music/sporting activities
