The Accelerated Learning Room

As students and staff continue to enjoy the summer holidays work is continuing on an exciting new provision for students transitioning from primary to secondary education at The Holgate Academy in September. “It is a really exciting time seeing months of research and planning coming to fruition. We have been really fortunate to have gained the support of both local and national companies to help us prepare the Accelerated Learning room ready for September. The support from both Ikea and Tomlinson’s has meant that we will have an exceptional environment for the launch in September.“

Principal's Blog July 2018

We have arrived at the end of a very busy year- and what a fantastic one it has been!
 
Transition has been a key theme in recent weeks. On July 10th – 12th inclusive our new soon to be year 7 students spent three days with us experiencing life at The Holgate Academy. They had a great time and had the opportunity to meet their teachers, make new friends and experience a range of curriculum areas. They arrived in school on the first day full of worry and trepidation but by the end of day two they all left with beaming smiles on their faces, keen to return in September. They look set to be a great year group!
 
Our new Accelerated Learning room will be fully refurbished by the start of next term. This has all been possible because of a very generation donation from Tomlinson’s who upgraded the décor and IKEA who donated a range of furnishings - this will provide an excellent learning base for Ms Davies and Ms Chumun to work with some of our upcoming year 7 students.

Byron Festival 2018

Several months ago, the Hucknall 6th Form Centre was approached by the organisers of The Byron Festival and were asked if we would like to perform in this year's "Hucknall's Got Talent" event as part of the festivities.

Members of our after school theatre group jumped at the chance to showcase their considerable skill, and on Thursday 12th July, after a few weeks of planning and rehearsing, were able to perform on the stage in front of an appreciative audience.
