Welcome to North Kesteven Academy

North Kesteven is a school like no other. We are exceptionally proud of our vibrant community of students, parents, staff and governors who work together to provide an engaging and exciting learning environment where our young people can flourish. I hope that this prospectus will give you a flavour of the ethos and culture of our unique Academy and the extensive opportunities we offer. These are built on the principles of creating a safe, stimulating, respectful environment in which students can be inspired, grow and develop into aspiring adults.

We encourage all of our students to achieve excellence in all that they do. They are at the very heart of everything that we do. Our core purpose is to prepare students for the next steps in their lives and equip them with the confidence, skills and qualifications to become well-rounded people. We provide support for growth, development and ambition so that they can turn their goals into reality. In order to achieve this, we are not afraid to be different. Our educational vision is to go above and beyond “ordinary” and encourage and support our students to excel both academically and personally, due in part to our supportive staff, the wide range of subjects we offer, our superb teaching methods and relationships with students and parents.

Forging excellent partnerships

We have high expectations and are passionate about offering the best educational opportunities for all. We welcome students from all backgrounds and abilities and our aim is to ensure that every student is inspired to fulfil their potential, no matter where their talents lie.

As an independent Academy, we have been able to retain the elements that make it a unique and vibrant place to work and learn. Partnership working is important to us and our students benefit from the close connections we have made in further and higher education and commercial organisations.

We have become Lincoln City Football Club’s education partner, delivering their post 16 qualifications and we are very proud to be their school of choice. Another great example of this is our partnership with two University medical schools and the Medical School Council, enabling us to be the first school in the country to create and deliver a series of conferences with our partners.

As Headteacher at North Kesteven Academy, I am determined to ensure students achieve their potential and that we continue to offer the highest quality teaching and learning, enrichment experiences and personal development.

I encourage you to visit us so you can experience our ethos and high standards for yourself and I look forward to welcoming you and working in partnership with you.
