IT’S the Birmingham school where nine out of ten kids speak English as a second language.

Yet language is no barrier to success at the Holte School in Lozells, which has been named one of Birmingham’s best schools after getting a glowing Ofsted report.

The 1,150-pupil secondary school retained its ‘outstanding’ tag under tough new inspection rules after a visit by the Government watchdog two weeks ago.

Nearly 90 per cent of pupils speak a different language as their mother tongue – compared to the national average of just 12 per cent. The vast majority of children hail from Bengali, Pakistani or Somali backgrounds and there are just eight white pupils at the school.

Welcome to Holte Visual and Performing Arts College.   If there is anything further you would like to know please do not hesitate to contact us, as we believe strongly in open communication.  At Holte we care deeply for our pupils, our primary concern is their safety and well-being. The pupils are the focus of all our efforts. Parents and carers should know that we value each child equally. We constantly work to ensure that pupil motivation is maintained at all times. We require pupils to promote the school through excellent attendance, punctuality, behaviour and smart uniform. By working hard together to achieve targets that stretch them, our pupils are able to realise outstanding goals. Through encouraging one another the school has developed an ethos which builds success. The community we serve is blessed with a rich diversity of languages, cultures and faiths. It is a credit to the school that, together, we learn how to embrace and respect each others’ identity. Above all we are a community school developing our learning programmes to meet the needs of all pupils. We recognise that we are preparing our pupils for the world of further study, employment and adulthood. Achievement at Holte is broad. Whether through our extensive arts or sports programmes we expect all pupils to contribute to the wider life of the school. We aim to equip our pupils to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing society, aware of the opportunities available to them.
