Grand Opening of new Sports Hall


Holmwood House School in Colchester was the scene of the exciting Grand Opening of their magnificent new Sports Hall. Sky Sports celebrity and former England cricketer, Nick Knight, pulled the draw cord on the curtains to unveil the commemorative plaque, as well as spending a great deal of time in the practice nets with some of the school's budding young cricketers. He said it took him back to his own school days which were so instrumental in preparing him for the exciting career he has enjoyed.

The Headmaster, Alexander Mitchell, on behalf of the Directors, staff and pupils of this highly successful 4-13 co-ed Prep School, welcomed around 250 guests, including the Mayor, representatives of local sporting associations and some of the school's sponsors, to a champagne reception at which the parents played a hugely supportive role. A great night was had by all!
