The Holgate Academy Working with the Careers & Enterprise Company and D2N2

The Holgate Academy is working with the Careers & Enterprise Company and D2N2 on the Enterprise Adviser Network project. We are very pleased to be working alongside Warburton’s to enhance our industrial links with local employers. We hope that this new relationship will help us to support young people in developing the work related skills that employers need to see from them. We hope that by working alongside local companies we can embed D2N2 goals which will enable our students to engage with employers and be better informed about the world of work generally and the wealth of opportunities that the local area has to offer. 
“Warburtons prides itself on developing strong links with the communities we serve.  As an Enterprise Advisor, I look forward to working with Holgate School to increase access to local employers, strengthen skills required by Employers in the modern workplace, and support young people define their chosen careers.”
Lyndsay Wray

Academy Director's Blog April 2017

Having come to the end of what has been a very busy- but very successful last term we are all were looking forward to a holiday. However I always feel it is appropriate to reflect on the achievements of all who work and strive for success at Holgate and the surrounding schools. It makes me very proud to be part of this school community.
During Feb half term Mr Brown organised a ski trip to Italy. At the start of the week very few students had experienced the wonders of skiing, but by the end all had made excellent progress- thanks to Mr Brown, Mr Ellis and Mrs Graham for giving up their holiday time to give our students a great experience.

Sixth Form Visit to London

On Tuesday 18th April, we took a coach load of year 12 and 13 students to London for the day. Art and photography students were taken to the Tate and around interesting sites to photograph- including the M&Ms store! Science students were taken to the Science museum and got to see the capsule Tim Peake returned to earth in. History and Gov&Politics students were taken on a tour around the Supreme Court which has recently heard cases like the government’s right to trigger Article 50 and whether a dad had the right to take his daughter out of school for a holiday.
