The Holgate Academy is proud to congratulate students and staff on the achievement of this year’s GCSE cohort.
On the back of our successful Ofsted inspection in July our students achieved some of the best ever grades including maths with 66% of pupils gaining an A*-C grade and an impressive 16% getting the top grades of A and A*. Other highlights include Dance, PE BTEC and ICT all with 100% pass rates at A*-C. There were also strong results in science and the humanities.
Along with a number of other schools we have concerns about the volatility of English results and we will be asking the Examination board to review them and inform us of any changes.
Today (Thursday 13th August) saw a host of nervous students finding out their A' level grades at the Holgate Academy. Results day is always a nerve wracking time, for both students and their teachers, as it not only marks the end of two years worth of hard work, but, for many, is also the day that they find out whether or not they have been accepted onto their chosen university course. This year was no exception, and staff were proud to share this momentous occasion with the students and to congratulate them on their success.
Officially Better Than A Theme Park
Summer School is so good, that even though one of our new Year 7 students had won FREE tickets to go to a major theme park on Monday, he decided he would much rather come to Summer School instead!
On Monday we had a great day of mixed activities. We had some new students who joined some of the Week One Team, and we alternated between three different activities.
