Go4SET students visit the Explore Manufacturing site

A group of year 9 students have been working hard as part of their Go4Set STEM project to design an eco-friendly hotel.  Ahead of their competition next week, mentor Matt organised a workplace visit so we could see how traditional construction methods are being transformed into a more modern assembly process.  We visited the Explore Manufacturing site, part of Laing O’Rouke.
We began the afternoon in the board room – our students were right at home there!  We heard about the work Laing O’Rouke have done, working on schools, hospitals, airports, the Leadenhall building, the Olympic village… the list was extensive and very impressive. 

Silver medal for our Rounders team!

Congratulations to the Year 9 girls Rounders team who won a silver medal in the Ashfield District event. After a bit of a shaky start the girls showed resilience and worked tremendously hard as a team in order to secure 2nd place. Everyone at The Holgate Academy are immensely proud of you all! Well done!
