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.

Diverse Academies Games 2018

The annual inter-academy games was held, this year, on Tuesday 10th July at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre. A full coach-load of students from The Holgate Academy arrived at the leisure centre for the start time of 10am, and quickly established themselves into their roles.
 
The day was jam-packed full of events and sports, and Holgate students were kept very busy throughout the day. In the morning, our year 7 and 8 students started with the field events while year 9 and 10 students took to the track, alongside students from the other DALP academies.

Able and talented day at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre

On Monday 9th July, able and talented students from years 7, 8 and 9 were invited to go on an academic trip to the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre, to get a taste of post 16 life.
 
Miss Jones and Miss Bickerstaffe hosted the students from years 7 and 8 in the morning, which was really lively and interesting. Students were treated to a tour of the centre and the facilities, and then taken to one of the sixth form teaching spaces to engage in some key problem solving activities, including trying to build the tallest tower using spaghetti strands and marshmallows (which was not entirely successful) and protecting an egg from smashing when dropped, by using restricted materials. Some of the teams came up with some really great ideas, and engaged in very impressive team working processed to get their best results.
 
The students then worked with Mrs Morris, who runs the Debating Society at the sixth form, on key debating and presentational techniques, and then they had a go at competing in their own debates in front of an audience. Topics ranged from discussion on school uniform and homework, to restrictions on TV watching for under 16s and whether dog owners should be trained. The students were very impressive with their opinion-based techniques, backing them up with reasons, and many of them showed real skill in eye contact and good physicality.
