Welcome to Sir John Gleed – a non-selective academy sponsored by CfBT. Our aim is to provide an outstanding alternative to the grammar system for Spalding and its surroundings.

The academy is rapidly getting back on track after a difficult start to life as a newly merged co-ed establishment, bringing together a boys and girls school which shared the same site. The merger and our start as an academy was a problematic time for the school, but it is now on the way up – see our latest HMI inspection report. Although the academy currently remains in special measures, we anticipate continued, rapid and sustainable improvement throughout the academic year.

The best way to see the improvement is to come and have a look for yourselves. I am always pleased to show parents around the school – just contact us to arrange a suitable time.
