We truly believe that the education we offer at Spalding Academy is unprecedented – and so is each one of our students.
As a mixed non selective secondary school we pride ourselves on being able to provide a personalised approach that best meets the needs of each and every individual child.
Our belief is that Spalding Academy is a learning centre that encourages students to Aspire, Challenge, Achieve and as part of the wider family of the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust (SLAT), we have access to strong professional partnership links and outstanding educational thinking.
The school has myriad opportunities for children to access study support and extracurricular programmes, often involving working closely with the local community, particularly in sport and the arts - including music, performance and the visual arts.
We expect students to work hard and be committed to learning and we believe in high challenge that is coupled with high support, including exceptional pastoral care. We also demand high standards of behaviour that allow effective learning and teaching to take place.
Our high expectations for uniform standards, behaviour and student leadership programmes all show that Spalding Academy is aspiring to be good or better in all we do.
Our successful, oversubscribed school is based upon:

Executive Headteacher SLAT
The ethos of the school is evident in our vision, our mission statement and our values.
It is summed up in our motto - Aspire, Challenge, Achieve - which holds that not only do we aspire to be exceptional in all that we do, but that we will offer the opportunities for our students to challenge themselves and be challenged in order to achieve and to find the things that make each member of our community exceptional and celebrate them.
A mark of our success as a community will be that every one of us has a sense of self-worth and can recognise and articulate our strengths.
The values, vision, mission statement and motto have been collectively written by members of the school – first outlined by the staff, then developed in consultation with the junior leadership team and governors and shared and celebrated with parents.
As a community we:
Our vision is that every student at Spalding Academy is inspired, motivated, feels a sense of personal achievement and is equipped to pursue their goals and dreams with the personal qualities of courage, respect, integrity and resilience.
We strive to motivate our students to aim for greatness within a supportive ‘family type’ environment based on mutual respect. We believe that each and every one of our students should be celebrated in both their achievements and in their diversity.
We are ambitious for greatness, actively pursue the total development of each individual, believing that the purpose of education is to develop confident, courageous and capable citizens who will make a positive contribution to society.
The result is that Spalding Academy is a community of learners that accepts no barriers to achievement.
