Boston High School is a girls’ selective school founded in 1914 and moved to its current location just outside the main town centre in beautiful grounds, with its own playing fields in 1937. The School converted to Academy status on 1 January 2013, keeping its name, uniform, selective process and traditions. There are currently approximately 850 students on roll, with 250 in the Sixth Form.

This is an academic school and we strive, as do our students, to push to our very best in terms of attainment. But this is not all the school is about. There is a rare atmosphere here – one of inquisitive intellectual exploration, a commitment to others and the real feeling that we are a community. We have a strong Student Leadership Team, Subject Prefects and a house system which encourages all to be involved. Clubs run from sport to Dissection Club to the prestigious Young Journalists (whose work can be seen on our website) and beyond. There are fantastic musical opportunities for students with productions and concerts held each year. The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme flourishes and school trips this year include ones to The Battlefields, Stratford, Murcia and Dieppe, to name a few. We have links with Japan, accommodating exchange students every two years. It really is a fantastic place to work

Every teaching room has an integrated data-projector. We are a SIMS school.

Admission to the School is presently based on Lincolnshire Grammar School Consortium’s 11+ procedure.

Results in public examinations are outstanding, with the majority of our students progressing to university, including Oxford and Cambridge and medical/veterinary courses. In terms of academic performance we are the top performer in the area by some not inconsiderable way.

The Leadership Team currently consists of the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, and four Assistant Headteachers. There is an excellent and much-appreciated programme of induction for NQTs and new staff.
