Holmes - follow us on Insta!
Dame Kelly Holmes became a double gold Olympian in 2004 in the 800m and 1500m track events. Before she became an Olympian, she joined the army at the age of 17 and eventually became the face of MoneyForce, an organisation that offers money advice to the UK Armed Forces.
As a community, we Holmie students believe that ‘Holmes is where the heart is’. We always give back to those who have helped us; be that to our teachers, mentors or parents.
We value each and every member of our House. It took Dame Kelly Holmes 22 years to achieve her double gold after going through critical depression and injury, and she still came through on top. She started at 12 and got to where she wanted to be at 34.
We should never give up on our hopes and dreams, as Holmes has shown us that through determination and resilience we can all succeed. At Beaconsfield High School we believe that everyone can get over any obstacle in order to achieve their aspirations.
Hi! My name is Zara, and I am one of the new Heads of House for Holmes, a role I have aspired to! I take Biology Chemistry and Psychology A level.
I am excited to see how Emilia and I can improve the reputation of Holmes as this year’s Head of House. I love the House spirit in the school, and I would love to generate more by getting a greater number of students involved in inter House competitions and other challenges. I am also very excited for Sports Day when I hope Holmes will win lots of House points and will restore the House spirit that was prominent before the pandemic.
Hello, my name is Emilia and I am delighted to be taking on the role of Holmes Head of House!
I currently study English Literature, History and Philosophy and Ethics for A level and my interests include playing hockey in the U18 school team, skiing and tennis.
I wanted to be Head of House so I can get to know the younger years, collaborate with my peers in a position of responsibility and have an influence on the school community that I am proud of.
I am committed to building House spirit and encouraging people to step out their comfort zone so that they can try something new and have some fun! I also want to encourage all students to show pride in their House by participating in exciting upcoming events such as House tournaments and Sports Day.
