The Holgate Academy Showcase Event

On Wednesday 7th March, students from The Holgate Academy performed with energy, passion and flair in the annual Showcase event, as well as a fantastic performance of 'Blood Brothers'. The event was a success and greatly enjoyed by all who showed their support by attending the evening. The Performance Team would like to thank the students for their incredible determination and hard work, which was evident from their fantastic performances. Thank you also to all staff that supported the event, as well as all family members and friends that made up a very supportive audience. 

Visit to Magdalen College at Oxford University

On Monday 12th March I had the privilege of taking 40 pupils across Year 7 to Year 10 to visit Magdalen College at Oxford University. The aim of the trip was to raise pupils’ aspirations and allow them to gain a better understanding of higher education. The pupils engaged in a workshop exploring university life in general, before looking at Oxford specifically. The pupils had the opportunity to interact with current Oxford students over lunch in the Harry Potter style dining hall, asking questions and finding more out about university life from a student perspective. The pupils were then given a tour of the university, getting the opportunity to explore and understand the different buildings, including university halls, buildings used for exams and graduation, as well as the main university library. All of the pupils were fantastic, engaging with all of the activities provided and asking excellent questions.
