About Holyport College
HIGH ASPIRATIONS, TRADITIONAL VALUES
Holyport College is an all-ability co-educational day and boarding school for students aged 11 – 19 years. It opened in September 2014 as a brand new state funded school in Holyport, Berkshire – one of the new free schools. Holyport College was officially opened by Her Majesty the Queen in November 2014.
Holyport College is the first free school to offer boarding. State boarding schools provide high quality boarding at the lowest possible cost - only the cost of boarding is paid for as the education is free. 45% of our pupils are boarders. Our day and boarding pupils come from both the state and independent sectors.
We start teaching GCSE in September 2015 and we will open our Sixth Form in September 2017. We are therefore looking for enthusiastic teachers who will get the most out of our students and enable them to make better than expected progress. We want every child to fulfil their potential and go on to leading universities and careers. We have WIFI throughout the school and we equip every student with the tools and understanding they need to move into a technology-centred working environment.
Eton College is our sole educational sponsor. Our students have access to Eton’s facilities and valuable partnerships between departments are being established. Teachers from both schools have worked together on a range of projects and we look forward to seeing the partnership evolve over the coming years.
Set in an idyllic semi-rural location, yet close to major transport networks, Holyport College is easily accessible. The College campus is only a few miles from the M4 motorway, 10 minutes from Maidenhead train station, which serves London Paddington, and 25 minutes’ drive from London Heathrow airport. Nearby, the towns of Maidenhead and Windsor provide a huge range of attractions and amenities, including theatre, cinema, ten-pin bowling, shops and restaurants. Affordable, single accommodation, operated by the College, is available nearby.

We have had nothing but positive feedback from our daughter since she started at Holyport College. The lunches are delicious, she is enjoying the lessons, and has been chosen for the hockey A team! Thank you very much for all your efforts, we are so pleased that we obviously made the right decision to send her to Holyport College.- Parent
