The deadline has now passed for applications for September 2021 entry, with the national offer day on 1 March 2021.

For parents interested in looking for a place for their son or daughter in the future, we offer a number of opportunities to allow you to visit the academy and discover how we help students achieve to the best of their ability. Please note that under current circumstances, these arrangements may be subject to change – we will update our website when we are able to allow visitors back onto the academy site.

Open evenings

Our open evenings usually take place in June and September each year. The whole family is welcome to come along and explore the opportunities on offer at the academy. The dates for these open evenings will be advertised on our website and through our social media channels.

Our annual September open evening did not take place in a traditional manner in 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak, but we held an online event to ensure that students and families were able to connect with satff, ask questions, and find out about life at Holgate.

There is a wealth of information on our website about how Holgate can support your children as they move into secondary education. If you do have further questions, please contact a member of our transition team here.

Academy in Action tours

If you are considering making an application for your son or daughter to attend Holgate, our Academy in Action tours are the perfect opportunity to visit us on a normal academy day to get a taste of life here.

Tours of the academy are available throughout term time by prior arrangement. (Please note that these tours are currently suspended – however, you can still arrange to speak with a member of our transition team via the contact methods below.)

To register your interest please call 0115 963 2104 ext 256 or email:
