The college, originally built in the 1930’s has enjoyed extensive remodelling over the years and a focussed refurbishment programme ensures that it is attractive and contemporary. There is a purpose built classroom block for English and modern foreign languages, learning resource centre and learning support wing. Students benefit from sports fields, a heated outdoor swimming pool, a Technology wing and an on-site Youth Centre which is used for teaching during school hours. There is a spacious, well equipped sports hall that also serves the local community.
The college is a warm and friendly place to work where discipline is firm but fair and where we receive good support from parents. The staff here work and play hard and have focussed efforts on academic rigour, establishing high expectations of students and providing an extensive range of additional activities that have had a significant effect in raising attainment in national tests and at GCSE level. Class sizes are approximately 25.
Our recent Ofsted report completed in late November 2006 agreed with our own judgements on our effectiveness as good. They stated that standards are rising and progression in years 7-9 is outstanding. There is an upward trend in performance in years 10 and 11, where achievement is good when performance data on entry is analysed.
In July 2007 we achieved the National Healthy Schools Award and FMiS (Financial Management Standard in Schools), of which indicates the continuing drive for improvement at John Spendluffe Technology College. We hold the national Sportsmark Award and we have gained Intermediate Level International Schools Award, now working towards the full standard.
The College has a pro-active approach to curriculum innovation, development and review. Literacy and Citizenship are delivered at key stage 3 in order to raise aspirations and achievement. Our policy and implementation for More Able and Talented students raises and celebrates the high expectations we hold for our students here.
At key stage 4 a wide range of GCSE, BTEC and other vocational courses are offered; vocational and applied learning programmes are in place for a small group of students in years 10 and 11 and we have a partnership with Boston College for entry level learners and for students at level 2 on Young Apprenticeship programmes. Digital Applications in ICT, BTEC Engineering and Hospitality Travel and Tourism are recent innovative curriculum developments. We are the lead delivery partners for Diploma Engineering within Lincs East Consortium, delivering at Level 2 in September 2008.
One of our aims in the next phase of the college’s development is to build a strong international element and this process is underway with French exchange with a school in Montpellier, a French Assistant and international pen friend system. We introduce cultural diversity through organised college visitors and displays, trips and visits and extra curricular activity.
We have addressed workforce remodelling issues so that cover for lessons is increasingly a rarity and where increasing numbers of learning support assistants and administrative support allows creative and innovative approaches to learning from each teaching and learning team.
As one parent wrote: ‘ My child is making good academic progress but just as importantly he has grown in self confidence and self belief. I believe the college genuinely cares about individuals, valuing all their talents and achievements.’

We welcome and value your interest in us.
