The Holgate Academy to Become a Centre of Excellence in Financial Education

Students here at The Holgate Academy will soon be taught about money and personal finance, after it was announced that the school has been chosen to become a Centre of Excellence in financial education as part of a ground-breaking partnership between the UK’s leading financial education charity pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) and Santander.
The announcement means that the school will work with pfeg’s educational specialists to create a detailed programme of financial education for their students and integrate the teaching of personal finance into the school curriculum.  Teachers will be supported in the delivery of effective personal finance lessons and learning activities, drawing on the charity’s 14 years experience of supporting educators in the schools across the UK.

It has been an exciting start back for both staff and students at The Holgate Academy, we have a lot to celebrate; a new science block which students have used for the first time this week, our new principal Neil Holmes is in post and another good year of summer exam results plus much more.

Introduction Form The New Principal Neil Holmes

I am writing to introduce myself as the new Principal of The Holgate Academy.  I am absolutely delighted to have started in post and consider it a privilege to have been appointed.  I look forward to meeting many of you during the next few months.
Most of my career has been in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire where I have been a teacher for 22 years. I was motivated to become a teacher because of my own schooling here at Holgate (a long time ago!) where I experienced  teachers who were determined to make a difference to the young people they worked with. As a school boy and as a teacher I have been fortunate to be in schools that believe that education is about developing the whole person, socially, emotionally and academically. These are the principles I bring to Holgate. I am personally very excited about my return to Hucknall and sense a real buzz in the town and I want to help ensure that its young people have the best education possible to prepare them for the future.
