SPILSBY’S King Edward VI Academy officially opened its doors to the community last week when it held its first open evening as an academy.
Parents and pupils toured the academy with students who were very excited to talk about the developments which have been made.
The academy has been transformed over the summer. There has been a significant investment in the buildings, and a new logo and uniform have been launched.
KEVI received a six-figure environmental improvement grant from the Department for Education to rebuild the reception, restyle the main entrance, landscape garden areas, create a new learning centre named The Spine, redecorate and refurbish the hall, carpet stairways, improve the hard court area with an all weather surface, install new fencing and basketball nets, and fund a total refurbishment of PE changing rooms.
Margaret Reeve, Principal, said: “It has been a fantastic summer for everyone associated with King Edward VI Academy. As soon as you get to the front door you will see a difference. What has been incredible though is the excitement created through our exam results.”
