Welcome from the Executive Principal and Head of School

Welcome from our Executive Principal

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you to Springwell Alternative Academy Grantham. My name is Lisa Ashcroft-­Day and I am Executive Principal of all four schools with Springwell Learning Community Lincolnshire. We are incredibly proud of the opportunities we are able to provide to support our pupils to move successfully on to the next stage of their education.

At Springwell our values are fundamental to everything we do. We believe in second chances, trauma informed practice, unconditional positive regard and a culture of nurture and support. Our aim is to work with our pupils to identify their needs and provide the best possible opportunities for all our pupils to develop and thrive in a climate of support, guidance and authentic care. We value the support of all of our families and believe that if we work in partnership, understand the collective challenges and face them together then we can really make a difference.


Welcome from our Head of School

I am delighted to welcome you to Springwell Grantham.

Our school is a truly inspirational place to learn, for both pupils and adults. Each day, our goal is to foster a school community where everyone feels happy and safe. Together, we strive to build relationships through trust, laughter and mutual respect.

At Springwell Grantham, every moment of the day is a learning opportunity, whether it be sharing breakfast in the morning or solving algebraic problems during mathematics. Staff work tirelessly to deliver a curriculum that is real and relevant for all our pupils, which creates a stimulating and exciting learning environment for everyone.
