Welcome to Holgate Academy


Welcome to the Holgate Post 16 Centre. Here we combine academic excellence with a supportive and very friendly atmosphere.  We have around 100 students currently within our Post 16 Centre studying a range of academic AS, A-Level and BTEC courses alongside work placements and other programmes designed to accommodate learners of all abilities.
 
Whatever your starting point, there is something here for you enabling progress on to the next level in your studies.  We pride ourselves on being small enough to be a truly welcoming environment.
 
Numbers in Post 16 have risen steadily over the past few years.  Our A-Level results have been consistently excellent.
 
This year our students achieved good results with all students who had applied for higher education gaining a place. All of our students leave us equipped with a range of skills, attitudes and values which prepare them for life in the workplace and our highly qualified staff are on hand to guide them through their education.
 
Together with academic excellence, we put a lot of time in the pastoral care of our students and we have a dedicated team of people to support the students’ overall progress and development.
 
Perhaps the most important feature of our post 16 centre is the teacher-student relationship forged and developed over time here at Holgate. We pride ourselves on always being available and doing the very best for all our students.

Hucknall is a thriving community with the large manufacturing industry, Rolls Royce based in the town. Hucknall was a mining community until the 1980s and is now a commuter town of 30,000 people.
