Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Tony Worth officially opens the new facilities at John Spendluffe Technology College

Over the past couple of years there has been over £1 million pounds investment at the school, in Alford. Resulting changes, include a new maths teaching centre, floodlit astro-turf, modernised and extended canteen, redeveloped English and Humanities buildings, updated science facilities and improvements to the sports hall. Most of the funding for the facilities was secured by successful bids for government funding.

Headteacher Steve Beverley said: “A huge amount of hard work went into the building projects and it is great to see our students benefiting from such fantastic facilities. This summer saw outstanding GCSE results at John Spendluffe with around 60 per cent of students achieving 5 A*-C grades including English and maths.

“This continues the tradition of strong academic success in the school which comes from successful teaching and learning. I am delighted that our students have fantastic facilities to match the excellent teaching and learning at the school. The facilities benefit our students in their academic studies but also in providing wider opportunities in sport and the arts that so many of our students enjoy. The opening event allowed us to celebrate our success and mark the significant improvement to school site.”
