About Skegness Academy
The Skegness Academy opened on 1 September 2010, replacing the predecessor St Clements College. It provides 11-19 education for up to 1190 pupils, including 340 post-16.
The Academy occupies a large site with extensive sports facilities and green space. We have just completed a £19m capital building programme, providing new and refurbished buildings to give pupils and staff a high quality learning environment. This includes a brand new Year 7 base to support pupils on the transition from primary to secondary school with a specialist team of staff leading on this area of the Academy.
At the Skegness Academy, we have high expectations of all our pupils and believe in rigorous and consistent enforcement of traditional basic standards of uniform, presentation and respect. This, in turn, ensures we create a positive climate for learning in which every pupil can reach their full potential.
Our vision is to deliver first class education for pupils in a happy and secure environment so they can reach their full potential with no limit on what they can achieve.
Pupils and staff will see a lot of the leadership team during the Academy day. They spend a great deal of time around the Academy, visiting lessons and supporting staff to ensure that basic standards are being met and the quality of teaching and learning is consistently high.
When we opened in September 2010, we introduced a much wider range of GCSE and A level courses to give the young people living in and around Skegness the opportunity to attend and thrive in a high performing Academy. Standards of behaviour, the quality of teaching and learning and community confidence have improved dramatically. We are proud of what the pupils and staff have achieved and we look forward to an even more successful future.
