About Frederick Gough School

Frederick Gough School in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, is a secondary community school for children aged 11-16. member of the North Lincolnshire Education Consortium. The pupil roll at around 1,165 is slightly small than the average secondary school. Most students are of white heritage.

When the school opened in 1960 it was called Ashby and then Bottesford Grammar School, then being renamed Frederick Gough Grammar School after the first Chair of governors, Alderman Frederick Gough.  It became a comprehensive school in 1969, linking with Ashby Girls' Secondary School.

The variety of languages taught at the school - Spanish, French, German and Russian – is one of its distinguishing features.

In 2014 Frederick Gough was part of the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme and gained several new or improved features, including a 3G Sports Pitch, sports block and hall and English block.

Values and vision

The school attaches great importance to getting to know each pupil, discovering their individual needs and identifying their potential in various areas of learning. 

Frederick Gough prides itself on developing provision for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural needs of pupils, recognising the role these play in making the decisions that will impact on their future and the contribution they can make to society. 

These values are an intrinsic part of school life.  Methods of moral guidance range from the continual and ad hoc interventions of all staff to special lessons, activities and trips with a moral aspect. 


“The school promotes students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well. It is enhanced by the strong relationships in school, and through the many visits and extra-curricular experiences that help build students’ confidence and self- esteem.”
