“We aim to send all young people into an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”

Welcome to 

The Gainsborough Academy

Proud to be Gainsborough.

Welcome from the Headteacher

The Gainsborough Academy is an 11-16 school in Lincolnshire with  670 students on roll. 

We consider ourselves to be a genuine comprehensive school, catering for students of a wide range of abilities, needs, aspirations and backgrounds. The school is part of Wickersley Partnership Trust (WPT), a growing family of like-minded secondary and primary schools.

At The Gainsborough Academy, we want all students to leave able and qualified to play their full part in the world. This means that we want each student to start their lives equipped with not only the qualifications, in terms of GCSE grades, but also the skills and attributes that they will need in order to deal with the challenges of life beyond their time at school. We know that we are at the start of an exciting journey towards excellence and that this will only be possible with persistent hard work, high standards and a culture of respect.
