Message from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to our academy, and I want to thank you for visiting our website. Hollingworth is a vibrant and exciting place to be, for both staff and pupils, and I hope our website and social media pages give you a sense of what it means to be a part of our community.

As Headteacher, I have a passion for inspiring learning and a vision to deliver ‘a world-class’ education to all pupils, so that they make outstanding progress and get the chances in life they deserve.

We are very proud of our pupils’ achievements, and we celebrate all forms of successes. We reward pupils for making progress, having excellent attendance and going above and beyond our high expectations. I make no apologies for our relentless focus on having the highest standards in all aspects of academy life and we expect the very best from all staff and pupils, at all times.

Our ethos is summarised through our mantra: ‘Everyone Excels Everyday’. Put simply, this means that we have an achievement focussed culture where we do not put a ceiling on what our pupils and staff can accomplish. This philosophy really matters. We understand that academic results opens doors for our young people and provides the opportunities for them to shape their lives. We aim to be consistent in our approach to everything we do, never compromising on our high expectations so that all our pupils, no matter what their starting point or circumstance, thrive and achieve their absolute best. At Hollingworth, we aim to make success achievable and inevitable.

Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff are committed to providing every young person at Hollingworth with the very best start in life and education. We are driven by our core values: ‘Respect’, ‘Responsibility’, and ‘Resilience’, which are a central part of every pupil’s learning experience and the culture of Hollingworth.

Finally, I recognise that there is no substitute for seeing the school for yourself, chatting to our amazing pupils and staff, and feeling the ‘buzz’ of the atmosphere in the corridors and classrooms. However, I do hope the website and our Twitter page @HollingworthAc will give you a flavour of what we are all about and the many opportunities available here.
