Our most recent full Ofsted inspection was carried out in June 2022.

We were pleased that the importance we place on the welfare of our students was recognised and Ofsted confirmed that our arrangements for safeguarding are effective. Ofsted also acknowledged that our teachers have good subject knowledge and are passionate about the subjects they teach within a broad curriculum. They also noted our excellent extra-curricular provision.

However, overall the judgement falls significantly short of our high expectations and standards. Whilst disappointing, some aspects of the report reflect areas we had already identified but which are not typical of our academy as a whole. We remain committed to the rapid improvement necessary to make Holgate a good school and one which the community can be proud of.

We recognise that, as parents and carers, you are key partners in your child’s learning journey. We care deeply about the development of each student and, by working together, we can ensure that our academy is one that students can thrive in and become proud to be a part of.
