• The Award for Science Teacher of the Year
  • Davison CE High School for Girls

Alex’s Headteacher wrote of her, “I have been astounded by her energy, enthusiasm and expertise on a daily basis, she is a fantastic role model for our students”. She is an exceptional teacher of Science, inspiring her students to love her subject, so much so that each year, a great many Year 11 students go on to further study in Science subjects. As one of her students commented, “it helps that she’s such an interesting person. It makes you think that Science must be interesting if Ms Holmes loves it. She is an example of someone who’s spent their whole life doing something they love!”
