The school was built in a semi open plan style for 210 pupils. During the seventies, the village grew and in 1983, three further classrooms were built, giving us accommodation for up to 300 pupils. In 1994 a Nursery class was provided to serve the community. A further classroom was added in 2001. In 2008 our Foundation Unit was built. In 2011, following a change to our admission number from 45 to 60, a further 4 classrooms were built. As part of this building project a new library was built and opened in November 2011 by local poet Coral Rumble.
As a school, we are also somewhat different in that we have a strong Christian ethos and we maintain a close connection with the Diocese of Oxford. The Church of England has a positive role in our school, providing both a community service and a specifically Christian form of education. Staff and Governors have defined the values we uphold in our mission statement. We would also stress that the school serves a multi-cultural society and we welcome those of all faiths.
Holyport School is committed to equality of opportunity for all members of its community. It underpins out aims, is referenced throughout our policies and we believe it is evident in our practice. Full details can be found in the policy and the Access plan which is available from school.
