Students at the Holgate Academy celebrate another successful year of impressive exam results. The year 11 students have achieved 55% 5A*-C including English and maths – well above government targets and maintaining the 2013 achievements when identified as one of the most improved schools in Nottinghamshire. Both Maths and English saw results rise with a record number of students making excellent progress to meet and beat their targets, while students taking GCSE English progressed at a rate well above students who have taken the exam across the country.
A-level results day is very nerve wracking for students and teachers as it marks the conclusion of two years of study. Students arrived at The Holgate Academy at 9:00am to collect their results and to find out if they have their first choice place at university. We have had a successful year here at Holgate with all students meeting or exceeding their targets. All the staff and governors at Holgate are very proud of our students and the hard work that they have put in over the 2 years in our 6th form and over the 7 years they have spent with us on their journey though education.
Erin, Abbie and Tiffany:
Hello, my name is Tiffany and have been here over the past two weeks. I love dragons and school. I have loved summer school and I wish I could come every year.
Hello, my name is Erin and over the past two weeks, we have been doing lots of things like the presentation. Most of them had rainbows and unicorns in it.
Keegan, Kia and Josh performed a rap:
Summer School was wicked and bad,
We all got together and have a laugh,
We played some games and made some cards,
We learned circus skills and all about crime,
We made new friends and had a great time,
Now it's time to say goodbye until September time,
Christy and Phoebe:
During Summer School we have enjoyed doing a variety of different activities like designing a moon colony, and describing our team and even making a board game. However, my favourite part was when we did the awesomely creative forensic science. This is the best school ever.
