The Holgate Academy Awarded Healthy Schools Status!

The Holgate Academy has recently been awarded Healthy schools status following a whole school review of personal, social and health education, healthy eating, physical activity and emotional health and well being of both its staff and students. As an Academy it is important that our pupils and staff are provided with the opportunities at school for enhancing their own health and well being. We now have confirmation that we are doing everything we can to support this. 

The Holgate Academy has become a pfeg Centre of Excellence in Financial Education!

Following a successful bid by Miss Boultby, we are pleased to announce that The Holgate Academy has been awarded Centre of Excellence status. This means that pupils at the Academy receive high quality financial education (which is now a compulsory part of the National Curriculum). Pupils in year 7 – 11 have the opportunity to participate in activities during Maths, PD and tutor time.
 
The Award is for 3 years and Miss Boultby is now working on continuing the excellent work that is already taking place.
