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, which delivers 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; being our teachers, mentors and 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 through any obstacle in order to achieve their aspirations.
