Welcome to Spalding Grammar School
Inspire, Challenge, Enrich
A school where individuals matter. Our principal aim is to ensure that all students develop into reflective and well-rounded individuals, attaining their full potential intellectually, socially and personally.
Academic excellence is at the heart of what we do, and we challenge all students to achieve their best through the provision of high-quality teaching in a stimulating environment. However, we are concerned as well with fostering open, enquiring minds, an awareness of spiritual values, and the development of the qualities of moral integrity, self-reliance, initiative, responsibility and self-confidence that will enable students to cope with the challenges they will meet in school, in their personal lives and in adult life.
The cornerstone of our approach is the strength of relationships between staff and students, forged not only in lessons but by means of our innovative Vertical Form Tutor system, which also allows students to benefit regularly from the experience of others beyond their own year group.
To be a member of Spalding Grammar School is to be part of a community that values and rewards participation. Those who invest the most benefit the most, and we encourage all students to make a positive contribution, both inside the classroom and to our rich extra-curricular programme; but, as well, to the wider world beyond the gates.
I am confident that you will be able to see all of this for yourself. When you walk around the school and speak to our students, I hope you will sense not only their courtesy and intelligence, but also their commitment and enthusiasm. I hope, as well, that once you have experienced our community, you will want to become a part of it.
