Values and Vision
Lincoln Castle Academy aims to encourage all students to take part in school life. The children have the opportunity to volunteer with charities, become an ambassador for LCA and participate in classroom discussions.

The school hopes each child will perform well and improve every day. Teachers set targets for the children with the hope that they will improve every day.
“This is a good academy. Giving every student the chance to succeed is at the very heart of its work and, consequently, they are included particularly well in all school activities. The academy’s good quality of care, guidance and support contributes well to students’ good personal development. Students are punctual, behave well, are keen to contribute to their own and the wider community, and have a well-developed understanding of the world of work. Attainment is rising and progress, particularly in English and mathematics, is accelerating. The governing body, leaders and managers know their academy well, self-evaluation is accurate and appropriate priorities for further development have been identified clearly. Consequently, the academy has a good capacity to sustain improvement.”
