Spalding High School is an 11 – 18 academically selective community girls’ grammar school with a co‐educational sixth form and has an excellent reputation within the local community and region. We are a popular, happy and successful school with strong support from governors, parents, students and a dedicated and highly experienced team of staff. There are currently 977 students on roll including 249 in the Sixth Form. Pupils come from throughout South Holland as well as from Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Peterborough. Our staff comprises 61 teaching staff and 44 support staff. We are a collegiate and supportive staff body with high standards and expectations.
We are a forward thinking and progressive school with an outward looking and creative curriculum and a rich and diverse extra-curricular programme. Our commitment to developing the whole person prepares students well for the challenges and opportunities that they will face in the rapidly changing world in which they live. We are proud of our happy, caring, purposeful and well-disciplined environment.
Personal development from childhood to adulthood is also of great importance to us. Our students grow into independent, articulate young women (and young men in the Sixth Form) who take responsibility for, and make decisions about their lives and their futures in an informed and intelligent way. We are proud of our excellent pastoral care and guidance which ensure that no student is lost in the crowd.
Our examination results regularly place us as one of the highest ranking state schools in Lincolnshire and the East Midlands at both GCSE and A Level and we routinely appear in the Times Top 200 list. In 2015 we were identified by the Good Schools Guide and appear on their list too.
