Hollycroft Primary School


Head Teacher Welcome


Dear Parents/ Carers,

On behalf of the Trust, Governing Body and staff I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Hollycroft Primary School.

Our website includes a range of useful and interesting information about our school.

Hollycroft Primary School is a caring community of children, parents, staff and governors.  Together we continually strive to provide a happy and supportive environment in which the unique potential in every child is realised. We are ambitious for our pupils and our aim is for each child to become a confident, enthusiastic and independent learner, achieving their best. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to this aim.

We are very proud of our school and our children. If you would like to find out more about us, please contact the office to arrange to come and see us. We welcome visits to our school.

If the information you require is not shown on these pages, please contact us and we will do our best to help. 


We hope you find all of the information you are looking for and that the website will give you an insight into the life at our wonderful school.

Hollycroft is a brand new school in the Hinckley area.  We will be accepting all pupils from EYFS to Year 6, as we grow. Please contact the school to find out what current years we are open to. The school will grow year on year as we welcome new children across the school. It will eventually have one year group (one form entry) EYFS to Year 6 and is built to cater for 210 pupils.

It is a very exciting time for all of us as we establish Hollycroft in the local community and we welcome your support for our school.

We greatly value parents and families as key to children’s success in education and are particularly keen to involve you in your child’s learning, by letting parents know what is happening in class, and supporting you to be able to help your child.


Our ethos is firmly rooted in our belief in providing the best opportunities for all of our pupils and Hollycroft is:

  • A place of happiness, excitement and wonder, full of happy, inquisitive children, who love learning and who are determined to do their best and try new things.
  • A place where we pursue high academic standards but also provide a well-balanced education, where children are given an opportunity to discover talents across the whole curriculum including in technology, The Arts, PE & Sport.
  • A place where aspiration is key: every child will be encouraged and given their chance to shine regardless of ability or circumstances. Mistakes are welcomed as opportunities for new learning and understanding.  

A place where learning is for all: our parents and community are welcome as our key learning partners in enabling children and families to flourish.

Hollycroft Primary School is an academy and enjoys the benefits of being part of the OWLS Academy Trust.

We work collaboratively with other schools in the trust, sharing practice and resources, however, our school also prides itself in retaining its autonomy.

Our aim is to recognise each child's individual talents. We want pupils at Hollycroft to have memorable, lifelong learning experiences. Our school is very special: we have a learning environment to be proud of; amazing teachers and support staff; and as a result pupils are engaged, enthusiastic and proud of their school.

We welcome visitors and if you would like to look round our fantastic school, please contact the office to make an appointment.

The OWLS Trust and Hollycroft School received confirmation from the Department of Education that the OWLS Trust had been given Secretary of State Approval to sponsor our new primary free school in Hinckley, after consultations with parents, teachers, children and the community.

The Governors and all other stakeholders, keeping abreast with the changing landscape of education, believe that partnership is vital to ensure stability and continuous high quality provision for our children. As a result the decision was made to join with local schools to from a Multi Academy Trust (MAT).

We are proud to be part of the OWLS (Oadby, Wigston & Leicestershire Schools) Academy Trust. The MAT has 9 schools in it: Langmoor, Glenmere, Little Hill, Fernvale, Hinckley Parks, New Lubbesthorpe, Ravenhurst, Hollycroft and Newlands.

We work closely with all schools to share expertise and resources to provide continuous, high quality provision for our children.
