02 Apr Kevin WardHead Teacher, Governor
I came to work in Hackney in 1983, and was employed as a teacher and then senior leader in two local primary schools before becoming Head Teacher of Holmleigh in September 2000. I have always loved the energy and creativity of working in the inner city of London, and have relished the challenges and opportunities presented by working within its diverse community.
As Head Teacher of Holmleigh I have tried to ensure that our children’s experience of school not only equips them with the skills needed to move onto the next phase of their education, but also to foster a love of lifelong learning through experiencing an enriched and exciting curriculum.
At Holmleigh we give personal and social education the highest priority as we try to foster the good values and attitudes that will result in our pupils becoming good citizens.
I feel privileged and proud to be the Head Teacher of this school, and very fortunate in being able to work with such a committed and enthusiastic staff team, wonderful children and supportive parents and governors.
