Welcome to North Kesteven Academy
Every young person deserves a positive and stimulating learning environment and the best educational opportunities.
We welcome students from all backgrounds and abilities and our aim is to ensure that every student is inspired to fulfil their individual potential, no matter where their talents lie.
Whichever road they choose, it’s going to be an exciting journey…
We offer our young people a range of academic pathways designed to develop the skills they need to fulfil their aspirations for the future.
Everyone at NK shares a passion for individual enrichment and works together to prepare students for the road ahead, ensuring that they’re equipped for whichever path they choose when they leave us. As they progress, every student benefits from the close connections we’ve made with partners in both further and higher education and several commercial organisations.
We aim to help everyone at NK to be the best version of themselves. That means we focus on the individual and on ensuring they develop into happy, creative, polite and responsible students who experience being valued, challenged and supported with encouragement. This is at the heart of everything we do, alongside our belief in outstanding teaching and learning being the facilitator to all of this.
North Kesteven is a large academy made up of six different colleges which represent the broad spectrum of talents that shape our curriculum and our world. Each college is driven by the desire to achieve and to generate happy, successful individuals and within these communities you will find challenge, flair, leadership, comradery, creativity and teamwork.
At North Kesteven we believe education is about balance. We encourage our young people to strive to be healthy in body and mind, so we try to place just as much emphasis on enjoying the arts and participating in sports as we do on academic attainment. There’s more to life than league tables after all!
Our Academy boasts superb sporting and arts facilities and our long association with One NK gives students access to a 25m swimming pool with slide and separate splash pool. Back on dry land, our purpose-built dance and fitness studios, spin studios, gymnasium, all-weather sports pitches, and impressive playing fields all provide the perfect opportunity for students to get active and stay healthy.
For students who are inspired to tread the boards, the Academy’s collaboration with the well-regarded Terry O’Toole Theatre offers access to a professional performance space, qualified technical staff and an exciting venue for Academy events. The theatre complements other performance facilities within the school, including a fully equipped drama studio and state of the art sound recording facilities. Perfect for budding musicians and actors to develop their skills.
