Two Holgate winners at the Nottingham Post Awards!

14 December 2018

Last night was the Nottingham Post Education Awards and two members of The Holgate Academy were shortlisted as finalists.

Miss Chumun, a highly-regarded teaching assistant was a finalist in the support staff of the year category. Miss Chumun goes the extra mile to ensure everyone’s experience of school is a positive one, recently playing a part in the addition of our new Accelerated Learning Room. Miss Chumun’s unfailing commitment makes her an indispensable part of the team.

Lewis, a year 10 student, was up for ‘Science and Engineering Student of the Year’. Lewis was an integral part of two of our STEM clubs last year – Lego Robotics and the Go4Set project. He worked diligently to build and programme a complex robot design and was a key member of the team who finished in the top 50 nationally. Lewis’ inquisitive nature and enthusiasm was noted on a workplace trip as part of the Go4Set project and showed knowledge beyond his years.

It was a brilliant evening for The Holgate Academy, with both Lewis and Miss Chumun announced as winners of their respective categories. Congratulations – we’re all very proud of you both!
