Ballet Master Class with Joshua Ecob

On Wednesday the 11th July the dance studio doors were opened yet again to Joshua Ecob. Making the most of his 2 month break from dancing for a Serbian Ballet Company, he came back to his roots of Holgate and taught another fantastic Ballet Masterclass. 
 
All our year 10 GCSE Dance students had the pleasure of taking part in a 3 hour masterclass and their effort throughout the session was superb! He introduced the day with a Ballet technique class, working on the Barre, in the centre and travelling sequences around the room.

Photography in Paris

On the 5th of July Holgate photography students began an epic journey to Paris that took 12 hours. Despite the arduous journey and choppy ferry crossing they arrived bright eyed and raring to go. The aim was to capture this bustling city using photography skills learnt in class. We started at the Notre dame Cathedral were we soaked up the Gothic architecture and street culture.

Football at Derby University

On Wednesday 4th July, a selection of year 10 students attended a variety of workshops at Derby University.  The purpose of the trip was to raise the aspirations of these boys by showing them how they can continue with sport into higher or further education. 
 
The day started with a presentation by current and past university students.  Our boys were told about the many different reasons students choose to go to university, and were made aware of the vast opportunities available during their university experience in regards to experience in the workplace, and the increased earning potential after they graduate.
