Spalding Academy gets its highest ever Progress 8 score from Department for Education
More proof of improving standards at Spalding Academy has come with new figures showing it to be one of top non-selective, mixed schools in Lincolnshire.
Department for Education (DfE) figures measuring the progress made by students across a range of subjects between the ends of Years 6 and 11 put Spalding Academy 13th in the county, just two places behind Spalding High School, South Holland's top-ranked school in the DfE table.
Bourne Academy, Spalding Academy's partner school in the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust (SLAT), rose seven places from last year's DfE figures to become the fifth highest-placed school in Lincolnshire, just two places behind Bourne Grammar School which was joint top for so-called Progress 8 scores last year.
