World Book Day 2017

On Thursday 2nd March 2017 The Holgate Academy will be celebrating World Book Day.
There will be lots happening, including a book quiz in tutor time, challenges and competitions throughout the day. We will also be celebrating by taking part in Readathon, a sponsored read to raise money for charity between Monday 6th and Friday 10th March. Over 40 students have already signed up and we’re hoping to raise even more money than previous years.

Arts Showcase Rehearsals

The students at The Holgate Academy have been working flat over the last few weeks in preparation for their ‘Annual Arts Showcase’. The voices are tuned, the muscles are stretched and the lines are learnt… this week the boards shall be tread!
They hope you will join them in a fun-filled evening of drama, dance and music, in over an hour of exciting songs, scenes and movement pieces; some of which the students have choreographed and devised themselves!
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening, 2nd March 2017 at 7:00pm to showcase their talents! Tickets are on sale at Hillcrest Reception. £3 for adults and £2 for children.

Futsal County Champions

On Tuesday 21st February 2017, The Holgate Academy Futsal team represented Ashfield (having not lost a game in qualifying as area Champions) against seven other areas: Broxtowe, Bassetlaw, Mansfield, Nottingham City (1), Rushcliffe, Newark and Sherwood, and Nottingham City (2). 
The amazing team from The Holgate Academy remained undefeated in their 7 games and won the competition hosted by Nottingham University therefore becoming County Champions!  A great achievement for our Year 7 boys Futsal team!
