About Lisle Marsden Church of England Primary Academy
Lisle Marsden is a large, very popular and oversubscribed three form entry primary converter academy set in a pleasant suburb near to the centre of Grimsby. We have a capacity of 630 pupils, and currently have 625 on role in 22 classes. We became an academy in 2011, one of the first in the area to convert, and have used our stand alone status to maximise our resources for the sole benefit of our pupils to create one of the best and most highly regarded schools in the local area.
The academy has always been proud to be a Church of England foundation, and its values are based overtly on the Christian Gospel. As a church school we have very close links with the diocese of Lincoln, as well as the two parishes the academy serves. Our Christian vision for education drives the work we do.
