Hucknall secondary schools are now providing a ‘Good’ education for all and that’s official.
In a reversal of fortunes, Holgate Academy has been awarded a ‘Good’ status following its inspection by education watchdogs earlier this month.
Following the publication of a number of reports on the effects of high levels of sugar in the diet of young people over the last few weeks, Holgate has made the decision to become a ‘fizz free’ Academy from the beginning of the next academic year. The reports by the British Medical Association and the Royal College of Surgeons both conclude that high sugar intake is the root cause for rising cases of obesity, osteoporosis and tooth decay.
On Monday 20th July year 10 students returned from a very successful work experience week. They were greeted by cement mixers, crime scenes and firemen. It was Skills day 2015.
The aim of the day was to help students recognise and develop work related skills outside of those they would normally consider. Our day was supported by the Fire Service, NCN; forensic science, motor vehicle mechanics and hairdressing, Ashfield homes supported by J. Tomlinson and Nottingham City Care as well as computing and catering workshops.
