Principal’s welcome

In This Section

Mrs S Forsey, PrincipalA warm welcome to The Holgate Academy.  We are a large secondary academy for students aged 11-16 years based in Hucknall and, together with our partner academies, offer post 16 study at the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre.

We support our young people, so they enjoy their time at the academy and play a key part in all that academy life has to offer. We are immensely proud of the successes achieved by our students and we constantly strive to do more and be even better. Our ultimate purpose is very simple – to do everything that we can to ensure that our students leave ready to take their place in an increasingly complicated and competitive world.

Outstanding teaching and learning is our priority. Our highly qualified and motivated staff work hard to ensure our students achieve at the highest level, whatever their starting point.

We are very proud of all our achievements, not only in examination success, but also in offering wide-ranging and relevant learning experiences beyond the curriculum, equipping all students for their next steps in life.

We hope our website provides the essential information you are looking for. However, nothing replaces personal contact, so please join us at our next open event or feel free to contact me and arrange a visit. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you at our academy.

Mrs S Forsey
Principal
