Holmleigh Park High School

Gloucestershire Echo - - EDUCATION CHOICES -


PA­TRICK Farm­brough was ap­pointed as the first head­teacher at Holmleigh Park High School, fol­low­ing the school’s de­ci­sion to join the Green­shaw Learn­ing Trust.

Mr Farm­brough was for­merly vice prin­ci­pal at West­min­ster Academy in Lon­don, where he was part of the team who took the school from in­ad­e­quate to out­stand­ing, and his am­bi­tion is for Holmleigh Park to do the same.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Farm­brough, this comes down to get­ting the ba­sics right. He said: “We ask ev­ery­one at Holmleigh Park to do three things: work hard, be kind, and take re­spon­si­bil­ity.

“We set high stan­dards for the stu­dents. We ex­pect them to work as hard as they can in ev­ery les­son and to be­have im­pec­ca­bly, so that all stu­dents can en­joy the best pos­si­ble chance to suc­ceed.

“It can be tough at first – but once stu­dents learn to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their ac­tions, they re­alise that they can fo­cus on en­joy­ing learn­ing with­out any dis­trac­tions.”
