About Lynn Grove Academy
About the school and local area
Our pupils make Lynn Grove a great place to work. In our school you will find lively positive young people with open minds who are ready to make the best of opportunities that come their way. They understand and uphold our core values of mutual respect, hard work and kindness. They are polite, considerate and engaging; we have many reasons to be proud of them.
We are a large and friendly staff team who understand the importance of collaboration to support all our pupils to achieve their full potential. We invest heavily in professional development and believe in working closely with our neighbouring schools.
Our ambition is that every young person should leave us with the attributes of a successful young adult ready for the next stage of their education or training. Through our lessons and through our extracurricular offer we aim to foster a love of learning and interests that will be enriching and sustaining well into adult life.
We are committed to offering a broad and balanced curriculum that allows all pupils to follow their interests and supports them to achieve highly. We never underestimate the importance of pastoral support and have structures in place to provide care and guidance through the challenges of teenage years. The pastoral team makes a significant contribution to the positive social, moral, cultural and spiritual life of the school.
We are proud to be members of the Creative Education Trust family of schools. As a CET school we have access to outstanding support from the very best experts in school improvement and professional development. Our pupils benefit from an exciting offer of cross trust enrichment activities and an innovative approach to cross curricular development through the ‘Knowledge Connected’ programme.
We have outstanding facilities. At the heart of the school is our wonderful library which is open daily from 0800 to 1730; popular with pupils, it supports our determination that ‘Lynn Grove Reads!’ Our strong sporting provision is enhanced by our extensive playing fields, 3G pitch and newly opened Hard Court Arena. Imaginative planning has enabled us to suite subject areas together and to provide extensive social space for our learners during break periods. We have excellent provision for ICT and an impressive Virtual Learning Environment.
We are fortunate to enjoy great support from Lynn Grove parents who show a real interest in the progress of their sons and daughters and contribute to the sense that our school is at the very heart of our community.
