Judged by Ofsted as Good, Sir John Nelthorpe School is a fully inclusive mixed 11-19 voluntary controlled comprehensive school in the historic market town of Brigg, in the heart of North Lincolnshire. It enjoys beautiful countryside, being close to the Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Humber Estuary and of course the iconic Humber Bridge which links North Lincolnshire with East Yorkshire and Humberside. With excellent road networks, the school employs staff who travel varying distances with ease in order to work here.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there is no comparable data from the summer 2020/21 examinations. In the 2019 GCSE results of particular note was the number of pupils achieving a pass grade or higher in the academic group of subjects defined as the prestigious 'English Baccalaureate'. Sir John Nelthorpe has topped the County League Tables in this measure, ranking first place for pupils achieving a standard pass (grade 4) or higher and ranking in first place for those achieving a strong pass (grade 5) or higher.

The GCSE "Basics" measure (recognising pupils who achieve a pass in both English and Maths) saw over 67% of pupils achieving the standard pass of grade 4 or better and over 48% of pupils achieving a strong pass of grade 5 and above. A remarkable pass rate of 100% was achieved in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
