  • Christmas Concert

    Published 16/12/20

    This year has certainly been a challenging one for people in the Creative Industries. In school, this has been mirrored with restrictions on what we can do, where we can rehearse and what equipment is available. However, Music has always been a very important part of the culture at University Academy Holbeach and I was determined that we would not let Covid-19 stop pupils at this school accessing a broad range of musical activities. We have had 10 different ensembles meeting every week in their different year pods and pupils have been able to learn new pieces and try out different instruments every week. The school’s annual Christmas Concert is a notable date in many people’s calendars and, although 2020’s concert is very different, I hope you will enjoy our seasonal offerings. I am immensely proud of all of the pupils who have performed and I hope you all enjoy the performances as much as I know they enjoyed filming them! May I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy, and hopefully, more normal New Year!

    Sam Graper – Head of Performing Arts

  • CALLING ALL FORMER STUDENTS ​​​​​​​

    Published 12/11/20

    If you’re a former student of University Academy Holbeach and George Farmer Language and Technology College, we want to hear from you!

    Your experiences since leaving could help to motivate and inspire our current students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future. We’d love you to join our alumni network and stay connected with the school.

    We’ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping schools like ours to stay connected with their former students. 

    You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience, become a mentor in person or online, or help with donations, fundraising or even apply to become a governor. 

    It doesn’t matter when you left us, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help.

    “I’m delighted we will now be working with Future First and South Holland District Council to develop a thriving alumni network. The confidence, learning and support former pupils can bring to current students will be invaluable and will make the transition from school to higher education or work so much easier.”

     
       

    Sheila Page, Principal
