Student life

Student lifeHucknall Sixth Form Centre is a great place to continue your studies, with great facilities to ensure that your academic and personal development are continually progressing. The Centre is made into a lively building with plenty of likeminded students to socialise with and work alongside - student life should also encompass areas of social development and enrichment, something that the Centre and Hucknall itself offers.

Hucknall town centre has a vibrant community with plenty of places to eat and drink, together with great venues to socialise with friends.

As the sixth form is centrally located, you’ll find yourself within easy reach of a range of transport links – so, you will be able to jump on a tram, train or bus from Hucknall and be at the heart of Nottingham city centre within 20 minutes. Nottingham is a dynamic and student-friendly city with a host of cultural, sporting and shopping venues on offer. Whether you fancy the cinema, a bite to eat, a music gig or to join a sports club, you won’t be short of opportunities to enhance your sixth form experience.

The National Academy also works very closely with local Hucknall churches and other community organisations, and students are encouraged to get involved. There is a strong chaplaincy team who provide pastoral support and lead acts of worship.

Additionally, The Holgate Academy supports the local community and charities in the Nottingham area. Annually, we are involved in the collection of food for Emmanuel House, contributing to the shoe box appeal in aid of the Samaritan Purse, donating to the Children’s Oncology Ward and fundraising for the Battle Batten charity. Students are encouraged to play an active part in all of our charity work.
