About the School

Carre’s Grammar School, is an over-subscribed selective Academy in the market town of Sleaford and a founding partner of the Robert Carre Trust.

Carre’s Grammar School has 800 students on roll; boys only 11-16, and co-educational in the Sixth Form. The school has long been synonymous with excellence and the school’s reputation for providing a first rate all-round education for local students has been strengthened even further over recent years.
Academic results at Carre’s Grammar School speak for themselves while achievements in Sport, Music and other activities are outstanding.

The school has been recognised as a Good school with Outstanding features by Ofsted which recognised the strengths of the school and supported their own perceived areas for improvement. Carre’s Grammar School has been recognised as one of the top schools in the country based on
performance in the last few years, and students have regularly accepted offers for Oxbridge and the top Universities, whilst others have gone onto apprenticeships or employment.

It is the ambition of Carre’s Grammar School that students should leave school with an enthusiasm for learning which will last them a lifetime. By encouraging creativity and originality alongside honesty, sensitivity and compassion staff believe that all students will develop the capacity to meet the challenges of the modern world and lead happy and fulfilling lives.

The friendly, cheerful atmosphere of the school helps students enjoy learning and, as they grow into young men and women, enables them to take increasing responsibility for themselves and for others around them.

Learning can only take place successfully in a caring and orderly community and Carre’s Grammar School provides an environment in which the young people are expected to work hard and share in the ethos and values of the school. Expectations of behaviour are high and staff aim to support each child through their school career so that they make the best of their talents.

Carre’s Grammar School is committed to the belief that it is very important to offer as many opportunities as possible to students to gain experience from learning outside the classroom. An extensive array of enrichment and extra-curricular activities is offered. Partnerships have been developed locally, nationally and internationally which extend opportunities for all.

Carre’s Grammar School is a remarkable school, a school proud of its heritage yet excited by its continued development, growth and innovation.
