About the team we are recruiting to

It is a very exciting time to be joining Hollyfast Primary School. With a new leadership structure in place and a brand new vision and values for our school, we are looking forward to growing, achieving and further transforming Hollyfast into a beacon school within the local area and beyond.


"I am learning so much since I've started teaching at Hollyfast, the support and encouragement to do my best is overwhelming in a good way. I am reminded constantly where to go if more support is needed, if things are not completed I am not greeted with disappointment but understanding and advice. I am so happy in my classroom and with my class/ team. The training I have already received I have been implementing and asking questions to find out more. When I am observed I receive clear feedback to help me improve and ways to adjust in the most time efficient way."


(Class Teacher, Hollyfast 2023.2024)
