Welcome to Our New Primary 1s

Welcome to Holmston Primary School. We are really looking forward to getting to know you and your families. We are a fantastic community and everyone works together so that you can be the best that you can be.

We know that this year has been very unusual and many things are different. We still want to share with you some of the information we would usually do on the days you and your mums or dads would come and visit us.

We will also post up some activities that you could try at home over the next few weeks.

Please take time to have a look on the website to give you a flavour of what it is like to be a Holmston pupil. Keep checking back as we will be updating this page regularly.

Let’s start off with a quick tour of the school:

It does look a little  bit quiet without all the children but we hope it gave you a flavour of our school.

The next video will give you some more information about the school.
