In 2003, the Directors of Sancton Wood School opened a specialist independent school for dyslexic children, Holme Court School. Originally based in Biggleswade, the school moved to Cherry Hinton Hall, Cambridge, next to Cambridge International School (see below).
Holme Court School is closely affiliated to Sancton Wood School; a small, family orientated, caring school with a pupil range of pre-school through to GCSE.
The School is co-educational day and boarding preparatory school for the education of dyslexic children. The School aims to develop the pupils' full potential to enable them to go on, or return, to mainstream schools. The teachers, specialists in all aspects of dyslexic education, will work with cutting edge nutritionists, computer programmers and psychological researchers to help dyslexic children overcome their reading problems. Holme Court works in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, to determine which of the current range of teaching strategies and interventions work the best.
Cambridge International School (CIS)
The Cambridge International School(CIS) is another sister school of Sancton Wood, founded by the Directors in 2005. While it has many of the hallmarks of Sancton Wood, such as small class sizes, it differs in being an international school in which the majority of pupils are not British and are from all over the world.
It is based in beautiful park land at Cherry Hinton Hall. In Infants and Juniors teaching follows the International Primary Curriculum and in Seniors pupils are prepared for IGCSEs. The school has a strong international outlook and emphasis
