Welcome to Woolacombe National Support and Teaching School. We have an inspirational team working here, who all believe in the school vision to ‘leave no stone unturned’ in the pursuit of an enriching and broad experience for all children. We are committed to helping our children develop and evolve during their time with us and beyond.

Our diverse and talented team is headed by myself, Gail Holmes. I am the Headteacher of Woolacombe National Support and Teaching School as well as my role as Head of Teaching School (you can find out more here) and my role as a Local Leader of Education.
Our Assistant Headteacher, Naomi Overney, is a Specialist Leader of Education. We also have Sandy Brown, who is a National Leader of Education and works with our Teaching School.

Our teaching staff are highly trained and regularly support and train local schools themselves. Many are Specialist Leaders in Education and we have specialists in Maths, English, P.E. and the Early Years. We consider ourselves fortunate to benefit from their passion and expertise every day.


At Woolacombe we seek excellence in all we do. We are part of the Alumnis Multi Academy Trust, regularly working with a collection of local schools to share outstanding practice and better the outcomes of all local children.
We believe that we need to leave ‘not stone unturned’ and we live these values every day.


We look forward to working together.
Gail Holmes | Head Teacher
