We believe that “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle
Hollingbourne School is ‘a learning community developing hearts and minds’. The school focuses on the development of the whole child, including skills and values as well as knowledge. It is a friendly and caring school, where expectations of all are high. It has an ethos underpinned by the school’s key values of: resilience, acceptance, aspiration, honesty, collaboration, respect.
Our values are:
Resilience: 'Willingness to work hard'
Acceptance: 'See with your heart not with your eyes'
Aspiration: 'Be the best version of you'
Honesty: 'Do the right thing, even when no one is looking'
Collaboration: 'Stronger together'
Respect: 'To be a good citizen'
Each week, children can be nominated as Hollingbourne Heroes if they are spotted meeting the school values.
