Are you considering a career in teaching? As a member of the Trent Valley Teaching School Alliance (TVTSA), The Holgate Academy and schools across the region, are offering the opportunity to gain experience in the classroom and apply for one of 50 School Direct trainee places for 2017 entry.
What is School Direct?
School Direct allows you to train to teach in a school of your choosing – with the expectation that you’ll then go on to work there on completion of the programme. 

Parish of St Mary Magdalene Christmas Tree Competition

On Wednesday 11th December 2016 school prefects from The Holgate Academy attended the Parish of St Mary Magdalene Church located on Hucknall Market Place. The students took part in the annual Christmas tree decorating competition for the festival and light switch on during the evening of the same day. The prefects were once again an absolute credit to the Academy and engaged in a very mature manner with the public who were asking questions about the trees.

Supporting The Local Community

On Thursday 1st December 2016 students from The Holgate Academy and Holgate Primary School took part in a community litter pick. The students from both schools removed litter from the bridge area that connects the two Holgate Schools together. 
This event was organised by Ashfield District Council and the students were joined by Hucknall County Councillor  John Wilmott and Gill Brookes from Ashfield District Council.
