The gainsborough academy summer school
The Gainsborough Academy is a secondary school with academy status located in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, England.
It opened as Trent Valley Academy on 1 September 2009. It is a mainstream (11-16) school created by the merger of two existing secondary schools, Castle Hills and Middlefield School. The two predecessor sites are now closed, and a new purpose-built facility has been occupied in Corringham Road, Gainsborough. The construction project has produced a four-storey, 15,000-square-metre building on a 12-hectare site. This is the first new school built in Lincolnshire in over 40 years, and its total cost was £35 million.
It has been established by the lead sponsor E-ACT (EduTrust Academies Charitable Trust) in partnership with the local community Gainsborough Educational Village Trust. Specialisms are technology and performing arts. It was officially opened in June 2010 by the Duke of Gloucester.
However, in 2014 it was announced that following serious concerns being raised by OFSTED Inspectors about its performance, the school would be put under a new sponsor. As of 1 June 2014, the Academy has become the Gainsborough Academy, under the sponsorship of the main local provider of further education, Lincoln College.
