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.


The RE rooms are each fitted with state of the art facilities such as Interactive Whiteboards and Visualisers. Each room also has a suite of computers or laptops and these facilities are accessible to pupils both within lessons and after school to assist with independent learning and homework.
