British Values
At The Holgate Academy we promote values which ensure that our students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. 
We prepare students for the life in modern Britain because values such as individual liberty, democracy, the law, mutual respect and tolerance are embedded within the curriculum and the ethos at Holgate.
In addition, these values are also promoted at various times throughout the year.
Our curriculum is broad and balanced, complies with legislation and provides a wide range of subjects which prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in Modern Britain.
It actively promotes the fundamental British values and it extends beyond the classroom with a wide range of visits and experiences.
It promotes tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths (or none), cultures and lifestyles through effective spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, including by engaging pupils in extracurricular activity and volunteering in the local community.
It is supported by a well-rounded programme of assemblies which offer a clear guidance of what is right and wrong.
