Community is at the heart of this school
Branston Community Academy has rightly gained a reputation as one of the very best schools in Lincolnshire. The school is rated by Ofsted as outstanding in all areas and in 2015 and 2016 the school received two national awards for the academic achievements of students for both progress and attainment at GCSE.
This is all within a school site that boasts excellent facilities enhanced further by £3 million worth of recent investment.
But it is not just the exceptional educational achievements which sets Branston apart – it is the desire to achieve academic excellence in a truly caring, supportive and nurturing environment which the school is most proud of, fostering values of individual aspiration, tolerance and compassion. Ofsted has praised the behaviour, resilience and kindness of students along with teachers who ‘enthuse students with a love for learning and foster a ‘can do’ culture.
Community is at the heart of this school and manifests itself not only in the relationships within the school but also the close ties with local organisations, businesses and people. The Academy is home to a thriving nursery and Heron’s gym, complete with a pool for public use. Art, Music and Sport play a large part of Academy life. Visitors and local dignitaries are welcomed to the Academy’s annual musical production and also enjoy the numerous concerts and shows throughout the year.
The views of students and parents show these are more than just fine words. In a national survey both rated the school as outstanding on every level. The school is justifiably proud of its success and students and welcomes visitors to see this in action either at the advertised open evening (10th September 2019) or during a visit which can be arranged by contacting the Academy office.
