Join our students at the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall for an Inspired Christmas Concert

Join us on Monday 4th December for ‘An Inspired Christmas Concert’ at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, 7-9pm.

Just add power! Hucknall pupils mix it up at E.ON’s microgeneration workshop

Students at The Holgate Academy in Hucknall have taken part in E.ON’s new ‘Micro Mix’ workshop which aims to help pupils investigate renewable energy sources and the role these play in the nation’s energy mix. 
Taking part in the Micro Mix, the year 9 and 10 pupils designed and built functioning micro models that generated electricity using wind, solar or hydro power. Working in competing teams, the pupils were encouraged to use their problem solving skills and creativity to build, test and improve their designs before finalising them.  

CONGRATULATIONS to Holgate student Izzy Coleman

Izzy gave up her October Half Term to raise money for Babbington Animal Rescue.  She raised over £500 by completing the following challenges: Climbing Scafell Pike, 10 mile swim, 25 mile walk, 15 mile run, Abseiling off Millersdale Bridge, Rock-climbing and White water rafting for 5 miles!

What a tremendous accomplishment! Everyone at The Holgate Academy is extremely proud of Izzy and her dedication to Babbington Animal Rescue.
