The Holgate Academy has a lot to celebrate; achieving a GOOD status from Ofsted, another excellent set of exam results, GovernorMark, ArtsMark Gold, becoming a centre of excellence in financial education plus much more. We are very proud of our students at The Holgate Academy and the service we provide to the local area.
Holgate first opened its doors to students in the September of 1955. The school was named after Annie Elizabeth Holgate who had been a teacher but had entered local politics and she became chair of the local education committee. She married Henry and had one son who was to become a noted mathematician and rise to head Grey College in at Durham University. Two other schools in Hucknall are named after Ms Holgate.
