Welcome To King Edward VI Academy

"Educate and inspire today to achieve the dreams of tomorrow."

King Edward VI, in Spilsby, Lincolnshire, opened as an academy in the autumn of 2012. We were formerly a Humanities College. 

"The choice of school for your child is a very important one and requires deep consideration. We offer every child the opportunity to fulfil their academic, creative and sporting potential. We pride ourselves on our level of care for the individual and wish to see each and every child achieve success in their own particular area of expertise."  -  Principal

We are a bilateral academy – that is, a secondary school with a grammar stream in each year of entry – that, as with other schools in the David Ross Education Trust’s network, has a House system.

On 26th September 2017, Ofsted conducted a short inspection of our academy. We are delighted that Ofsted has continued to judge King Edward's as a "Good" school. Some of the key findings:

  •           The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
  •           Since the previous inspection, decisive action has been taken to improve the school.
  •           The quality of teaching and learning is now much improved.
  •           Pupils said they are extremely proud of their school and grateful to their teachers for “all they do for us”.
  •           Pupils are polite and extremely smart in their uniform.
  •           Pupils are known well by staff. An enormous amount happens to make sure pupils are cared for and they feel safe in their school.
  •           Pupils are making good progress. More pupils are achieving the highest grades at GCSE.
  •           Highly skilled staff are sensitive in their approach to the care and support for pupils, this care and support is palpable.
