The Hollingworth VLE is currently working again after Firefly undertook maintenance on the site to investigate the issue. We are also looking into alternative provision to online learning, should we continue to experience problems. Many thanks for your patience.

Pupil Premium Awards

Hollingworth Academy has won £5000 in the Key Stage 4 category of the 2015 Pupil Premium Awards. The Rt Hon David Laws MP congratulated Hollingworth's success in a letter, saying:

"The reason you have been selected is that you are one of the most improved schools in the country in terms of the attainment and value-added progress of your disadvantaged pupils since 2011."

He also added:

"your school has proven to be one of the top 90 in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five or more A*-C grade GCSEs (or equivalent), including English and mathematics GCSEs."

Hollingworth have now been invited to apply for a chance to win one of the larger prizes, including the national award of £250,000.
