About Westgate Academy

Westgate Academy has been in existence since 1895 when it was a boys only school. Now, in 2021, we are a 4-form Junior School situated in the heart of the Bailgate area of Lincoln and we are lucky to be within the backdrop of Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle.

At Westgate Academy we believe that our core beliefs are intrinsic to the academic, emotional and characteristic development of the children in our care. We are committed to working together as a professional team and we are extremely proud of the high standards we achieve in all areas of our children’s development. Indeed, our Westgate Values form a key part of our DNA of our culture and what we expect our pupils to demonstrate on a day by day basis.

We believe children all have talents, which we must unlock, and our aspiration is that each child achieves their potential in a safe and happy environment. Working in close collaboration is highly valued and essential to guarantee success, and we believe in close partnerships between the school, parents and the wider community so that our pupils become resilient, confident, and well-rounded individuals.

Westgate Academy is a fully inclusive school working closely with schools in Lincoln, but also in Lincolnshire through the KYRA teaching schools, the East Midlands and nationally through the Challenge Partners initiative. We believe in sharing but also learning good practice from fellow good and outstanding schools.
