from the Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to the Archbishop Holgate’s School website.
Our school has a long tradition of serving the community dating back to 1546. We are proud to be a Church of England Academy and to provide the best possible education and opportunities for each and every student.
At the heart of all we do is a commitment to ‘Values, Care and Achievement’:
- Christian values that underpin all we do
- Outstanding pastoral care that sees each student as an individual
- Maximum achievement for all students, at all levels
The future for Archbishop Holgate’s is extremely exciting. Our shift to Academy status and rapidly expanding Sixth Form have allowed us to build on the outstanding judgements given to us by both Ofsted and SIAMS. Indeed as well as excellent outcomes at GCSE and A Level we were delighted to top the National League Tables for Post 16 Vocational qualifications in 2013/14. In April 2014 we were successful in our application to become a Teaching School and look forward to working with our Pathfinder partners for the benefit of the community we serve. Moving forward we will continue to ensure that all students achieve and succeed, making the most of their individual gifts and talents.
In the words of Ofsted:
“An outstanding school”
“An excellent quality of education and care”
“This is a school where every child does matter"
To help make this website easy to navigate, we have designed this homepage around three key areas: the main school website; the Sixth Form website and the school's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). All of these can be accessed by using the links on the right of this page.
