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’s Hana and I am the new Head of House for Holmes!
Jem and I are excited to see what we can bring to the role of Head of Holmes. I wanted to be Head of House as I have always loved working in a team. I hope to inspire the younger students to get involved with House events whilst also being a source of guidance and support. I look forward to being able to contribute and give back to the community that makes the Becky High journey so enjoyable, helping to positively impact and shape the experiences of the younger years.
I am currently studying Biology, Chemistry and Economics. I co-captain the school’s gymnastics team, a sport which I have participated in for a number of years, including competing regionally, nationally and even internationally at two world championships in America.
Hi everyone! My name’s Jem and I am the Head of House for Holmes. I wanted to be Head of House as I am a very bubbly character who loves to motivate and bring people together. I encourage any feedback, positive or negative, as to how collectively we can improve every students' Becky High experience through the platform the Senior Prefect team has been given. I am committed to including everyone in everything we do, no matter their interests, and I want every student to get involved in all aspects of school life.
In the coming year, I cannot wait for Sports Day and the fun assemblies Hana and I have planned. This is an opportunity to make real changes in every students’ life at Becky High and I am dedicated to ensuring everyone has bundles of fond memories to look back at from their time at this school.
For A-Levels I am studying Biology, Chemistry and Psychology and I thoroughly enjoy sports, dance and netball in particular.
