What makes Holyhead special is our commitment to learning without limits. Students enter the school with attainment levels significantly below the national average (ISDR) but go on to achieve whatever they set their minds to. More students than you find at other schools, go on to employment, Higher Education and Apprenticeships. They attend Russell Group Universities and read the most competitive courses you can imagine. They become Engineers, Lawyers, Accountants, Entrepreneurs and Doctors etc, but they also become well-rounded individuals who understand how to keep safe, how to articulate themselves and how to respect diversity, equality and active citizenship.

We invest a lot in developing the strength of their character, making students independent and confident with vision and intellectual curiosity.

The focus on the development of character extends to staff. Whilst we have a strong commitment to staff wellbeing and CPD. We also expect staff to become role models for the school community. Our induction, staff incentive scheme and person specifications place an emphasis on Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication.
