Holmer Green: a village rich in school choice


Holmer Green parents have an extremely wide choice of primary and secondary schools.

The reason for this largely stems from the village’s location in South Buckinghamshire:-

1. Holmer Green sits between the Chiltern towns of Amersham, Chesham, Beaconsfield, High Wycombe and Great Missenden, all of which have school places for Holmer Green children.

2. Holmer Green also sits on the boundary of a suburban area and a rural area so parents can access schools in both areas.

Holmer Green has its own state schools catering for ages 5 – 18. Buckinghamshire also has the 11+ selective system that allows the most academically-inclined pupils to attend some of the best state grammar schools in the country.

For those wishing to access schools in the independent sector, there are no less than ten independent schools within seven miles of the village. Some top public schools for boys and girls are also up to 15 miles from the village.

As villagers will confirm, one downside to Holmer Green’s fortunate set of circumstances is that parents can be bewildered by the choice and range of schools available.

holmergreenparents.info is designed to show the many choices available to parents who live in Holmer Green and help them balance the advantages and probabilities of getting their child into a particular school.

As part of that, we aim to help parents fully understand how state school places are allocated beyond the simple question of catchment areas.

For new residents and for those considering moving into the area, a general background on the village can be found at Wikipedia.
