Welcome Message

Nick Law (Headteacher)

Welcome to Carre’s Grammar School, an over-subscribed selective Academy with specialisms in Sports and Science, in the market town of Sleaford.

Carre’s has long been synonymous with excellence and the school’s reputation for providing a first rate all-round education for local children has been strengthened even further over recent years.  Our academic results speak for themselves while our achievements in sport, music, drama and other activities are outstanding. The friendly, cheerful atmosphere of the school helps our students enjoy learning and we enable them to take increasing responsibility for themselves and for others around them.

It is our ambition that Carre’s 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 we believe that our students will develop the capacity to meet the challenges of the modern world and lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Learning can only take place successfully in a caring and orderly community and we provide an environment in which the young people are expected to work hard and share in the ethos and values of the school. Our expectations of behaviour are high and we aim to support each child through their school career so that they make the best of their talents.

We are committed to the belief that it is very important to offer as many opportunities as possible to our 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.

We have been recognised by OFSTED as a High Performing Specialist School, introduced a co-educational sixth form in 2010, and became an Academy in August 2011; but Carre’s is not a school content to rest on its laurels. In order to provide a top quality education, we are continually seeking to build on the fine traditions of four centuries and help our students meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
