Gosberton Academy will be a brighter place after gaining a share of almost £38,000 of Government cash for school improvements.

The primary school, part of the Boston-based Phoenix Family of Schools, was one of 16 schools across Lincolnshire to be successful in the Department for Education’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) allocation.

As revealed by the Free Press three weeks ago, grants totalling at least £600,000 will be shared by Bourne Grammar School, Spalding Grammar School and Gosberton Academy for refurbishing student communal areas, re-roofing and new lighting respectively.

David Tebbutt, trust leader for business and finance at Gosberton Academy, said: “We are delighted to have been successful with our bid after we used professional engineers to help us put it in.

“It means that we can have all the lighting at the school upgraded so as to improve efficiency and reduce the trust’s light energy costs which will make a big difference.”
