About John Spendluffe Foundation Technology College

JSTC is a non-selective 11-16 co-educational school in a selective area. We are a popular, over-subscribed school of around 629 students. Despite being a secondary modern school, we have the full ability range including gifted and talented students. We are proud of the work that we do with our young people to enable them to challenge themselves academically and reach the highest of aspirations. At our most recent Ofsted inspection we were rated as ‘requires improvement’ with ‘good’ in Leadership and Management and Behaviour. We strongly encourage prospective candidates to read our positive Ofsted report which recognises that we have made much progress already towards re-gaining our ‘good’ grading. As a school we are working hard to develop our already broad curriculum offer to students to ensure that the new Ofsted framework recognises the excellent education we offer our students. We are a single academy trust but have developed strong networks and links with a range of partners and other schools locally and throughout the county, including the Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance, Kyra Teaching School and Humber Teaching School.

JSTC is situated in the small, quaint, rural market town of Alford on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Lincolnshire is a large county with a variety of beautiful landscapes: flat fens, coastal marshes, clay vales and the rolling uplands of the Wolds, attracting an abundance of wild flora and fauna. Morning drives across the stunning and tranquil Wolds frequently creates wonderful memories and conversation with colleagues. The school site is well placed and at the centre of the community of Alford with good road links to major urban centres in the East Midlands.
Housing is extremely low priced compared to other areas of the UK and new build developments are enhancing the housing choices available in the region.
