We are based in the heart of Caistor, a market town standing on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Lincoln is 24 miles to the south and Grimsby 12 miles to the east. To the north, over the Humber Bridge, Hull is about 30 minutes from here and major cities like Doncaster, Sheffield and Leeds can be reached easily within an hour and a half along the M180 motorway. Property prices are very reasonable compared to other parts of the country, while to the east you can enjoy the delights of the coast in resorts to suit everyone’s tastes.
The School is a special, unique place. All staff, teaching, administration and support, work hard to ensure that our students receive the best education possible. We number approximately 690 students, including 180 in the Sixth Form. We are also proud to be a single academy trust with a very supportive parental and governing body. We are keen to maintain our independence.
The School was founded in 1631 and the original school room is still in use. Most of our work, however, is done in buildings which were substantially remodelled and extended in the very recent past. In 2005, our Manning Building was extensively re-modelled to provide improved accommodation for Modern Languages, PE and History. We also gained an all-weather pitch and a new sports pavilion. The School has a new Food Technology Room, new Music facilities and we have extended our science provision creating the Olympic Torch Building for the teaching of Physics in 2014. Last summer our dining hall was expanded and remodelled. We have just submitted an ambitious £1.2m bid to create a new library and a multi-use performance facility.
We have been actively involved in a number of partnerships with other Lincolnshire Schools and local businesses. We are a selective school drawing our pupils from the upper 25% of the ability range. All our sixth formers are working for three or four A-levels and nearly all go on to either employment, apprenticeships and higher education, including Oxbridge and Russell Group universities. Our students are well motivated and, to quote our last inspection, ‘relish their learning.’ The atmosphere of the School is friendly, purposeful and inclusive. Colleagues are encouraged to develop their own skills and abilities in a supportive environment.
