During each academic year Hollis receive a "Pupil Premium". The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.
At Hollis there are two key areas that are identified for the use of Pupil Premium:
- To help raise literacy for the least able pupils at Hollis
- To help engage the most disaffected KS4 pupils who have a history of persistent absence
Every penny that comes in to Hollis from Pupil Premium has a direct effect on the learning and attainment of the children it is paid for.

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium Report
The DfE has made additional funds available for improving the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. This grant is known as the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium. The funds are primarily aimed at improving maths and English levels at key stage 2 (KS2). An allocation is made for every pupil who has not achieved the ‘expected standard’ in reading or maths at KS2 as per the October school census.
