Here at Holgate, we aim to nurture the students in our care and help them achieve to the best of their potential.

To facilitate this, our pastoral system consists of five year groups and tutor time. Each year group has a pastoral leader, with year 9 having two leaders.

Assemblies take place in year groups. These are either run in person in the main hall and we also run assemblies online via Microsoft Teams.

Additionally, we have four houses (Clumber, Rufford, Sherwood and Thoresby). Students are placed within one of our houses to take part in regular competitions throughout the year – the overall winner for the year wins the prestigious house cup.
