2020 - 2021

World Book Day

We celebrated World Book day on the 12th of May. The whole school dressed up as literary characters and took part in different activities throughout the day. We had a masked reader competition where pupils listened to a story and had to guess who the reader was, Red Class and Charcoal Class were the winners. We also created a whole school story! There was a little wooden sail boat and a suitcase with a key that was used as a prop for our story. Each class wrote a piece of the story and then sent it on to the next class for them to add on to it. It was brilliant! The children all had a wonderful day exploring books and sharing stories with each other.

Red Nose Day 2021

We were Super Hero's and raised money for Comic Relief!

Red Nose Day was back on Friday 19th March and this year it never felt more important to have some fun and raise money to support people living incredibly tough lives. We need the power of funny to turn laughs into lasting change.  We have been blown away by your generosity - we have raised a huge £493!  Thank you so much.

The last few days here have been full of fun. We had a wonderful Christmas dinner with trimmings, cooked brilliantly by the kitchen team. Classes had virtual calls from Santa who left chocolates and sweets in stockings on class doors. A Winter Wonderland was created on the corridor and to finish it all the children and staff have put together their version of 12 days of Christmas…. It’s 14 days long as we have 14 classes! We hope you enjoy it. Have a safe and Merry Christmas.

BBC Children in Need 2020

The whole school supported BBC Children in Need on Friday 13th November.  It was lovely to see so many pupils wearing their wellies and bobble hats!  The pupils had a wonderful day taking part in classbased Children in Need activities following the BBC Five to Thrive theme, which included PE with Joe Wicks and mindful and well being tasks.

The Duck Race 2020 was thoroughly enjoyed and some pupils were able to celebrate choosing the winner - Quackman & Bobbin'

Thank you so much for donating and supporting NRG Bronze Duke of Edinburgh team in their fundraising efforts - the total raised was a fabulous £195.










On Friday 23 October we wore PINK to raise awareness of breast cancer and supporting Breast Cancer Now.  NRG one of our Bronze Duke of Edinburgh organised PINK activities for the pupils to do during the day.  Thank you for supporting us and donating.

We have raised over our target, a massive £257 thank you so much.


















We’ve all been going through a difficult time, so wearing YELLOW is a way of showing solidarity with young people and helping them know that they’re not alone. Looking after our wellbeing has never been more important and too many young people still feel ashamed to open up about how they’re feeling. The more people who show they care, the more comfortable young people will feel about talking to someone if they’re struggling.

On Friday 9 October 2020 Hollywater School showed young people that they are not alone with their mental health and raised awareness of YoungMinds by wearing something YELLOW.








Macmillan Cake Event

As part of the Year 10 and 11 pupils Volunteering section of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award the pupils organised a MacMillan Coffee Morning for all the other pupils at Hollywater School. 

It was a great success and everyone was able to take part.

The Team would really like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for everyone's support and helping them with their fundraising.  All those who donated helped them raise £389!!!
