The Holme CE Primary School highly values its Christian ethos, its close links with All Saints Church.  We provide a happy and caring Christian environment, where children are active participants in their learning and are challenged to realise their full potential both intellectually and socially. We welcome children and their families of all faiths and those of none. 

 The official Published Admission Number (PAN) for the school is 30.

Please note that in 2018, Hampshire changed their distance calculations. Distances are now calculated from the ordnance survey home address point to the school address point, rather than the school reception.
