Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

A new state-of-the-art Alternative Academy for pupils at risk of exclusion has been unveiled in Mablethorpe.

Springwell Academy in Seaholme Road has been officially opened today by the Wellspring Academy Trust and Lincolnshire County Council.

The academy will make spaces available for 14 to 16 year olds who can no longer have access to mainstream education and are at risk of exclusion from schools in Lincolnshire.

It is the third development in Lincolnshire designed to accommodate alternative needs students in the county. Other academies in Macauley Drive, Lincoln and Beacon Road, Grantham, have already been built, making 189 places available.

 

Mark Wilson, CEO at Wellspring Academy Trust said: “We have been working in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council and the Department for Education over the past three years to substantially improve the offer to young people excluded from school and at risk of exclusion in Lincolnshire.

“The opening of these new schools marks a key milestone on this long journey. The schools will provide a safe, caring and inspirational environment where our young people can be supported to reach their fullest potential.”

Ian Dalby, framework manager at G F Tomlinson, said: “The new Mablethorpe academy is a great addition to the region, providing a safe and secure environment to promote positive learning for local students requiring an alternative to mainstream education.

 

“Over the course of these three projects with Wellspring Academy Trust, we have built a strong and ongoing relationship, and look forward to working together in the future on important developments that make a positive difference in their locations.

“Works have already begun on the new Springwell Alternative Academy in Spalding, and we are making excellent progress.”

Construction began at the end of July this year and is expected to be completed this winter. This will be the fourth academy built as part of the partnership and will provide a further 63 places for students living in Lincolnshire.
