Louth Academy Sixth Form Open Evening. Year 11 student Alex Graves with mum Rachel Graves and (l-r) Martin Brown, Executive Principal at Louth Academy, and David Hampson, Chief Executive of Tollbar MAT.
Louth Academy has showcased its brand new facilities to prospective Sixth Form students, who came to an Open Evening to see for themselves the new academic A Levels which will be on offer there from September 2018.
Students and their parents came from schools throughout the region to visit the site, which will become Louth Academy Upper School from September and will then have a self-contained Sixth Form Centre. The former Media Centre will be transformed during the summer break and will offer Academic A Levels for students throughout the area who are seeking university places or high-quality apprenticeships.
Louth Academy has already undergone six months of extensive refurbishments and work will continue there until the summer. The upgrade has been praised by local Town Councillors, who highlighted the academy’s “quite remarkable transformation” on a recent tour of its facilities.
Among those visiting the Open Evening were Year 10 King Edward V1 Grammar School student Toby Alexander. He said: “I am keeping my options open. I want to do Engineering so I am looking at doing Physics at A Levels. I'm impressed. The facilities here are very good."
Alex Graves, who is currently in Year 11 at Louth Academy, said: "I want to study A Levels. Louth Academy is my first choice. I have seen all the changes that have been made here and it has changed for the best."
Claire Naylor, who currently attends Giles Academy in Boston, said: “This is quite modern to other places I have seen. The staff are very friendly."
Martin Brown, Executive Principal said: “We are so excited about the brand new facilities which will be available to students here at Louth Academy. As a new member of Tollbar Multi Academy Trust, the academy is receiving fantastic support from Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, which has a superb reputation for delivering top class A Level tuition. It is fantastic to see so many interested students here for the Open Evening and we hope to welcome many of them to our brand new Sixth Form facilities in September.”
