Tollbar Family of Academies currently incorporates Tollbar, Cleethorpes, Somercotes, Reynolds and Theddlethorpe Academies. As such, joining our MAT means joining an organisation with an array of career opportunities that span five different locations. Staff from across all Academies regularly share outstanding practice and develop resources to ensure all students receive a world class education.
Tollbar Academy is an outstanding, over-subscribed 11-19 Academy with excellent facilities for students, sixth formers and staff alike. Teachers at the Academy enjoy a well-disciplined teaching environment where their future career progression is always encouraged and supported. Rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted on three consecutive occasions Tollbar Academy is at the forefront of integrating their successful practices across the MAT.
The sixth form, which is located on the Tollbar site, benefited from a brand new building to support learners in 2011, and a further £600,000 new build in the spring of 2013, both of which now support the massive increase in sixth form student numbers seen in recent years.
Staff benefit from an on-site adult café, a computer work room equipped with modern pc work stations and a recently refurbished staff room.
Cleethorpes Academy (with an 11-16 cohort), has improved results from 35% to 68% 5+ A*-C including English and Maths, since the partnership with Tollbar was established in September 2010. During 2013, £7.7 million was spent on the site to fund a full refurbishment and rebuild, with work completed in September 2013, giving Cleethorpes Academy unrivalled facilities within the local area for its students.
Reynolds Academy joined the MAT in 2013 and was rated as 'Good' by Ofsted in 2015. It is a Primary school located in the heart of Cleethorpes, and acts as one of the main feeder schools to Cleethorpes Academy. The site has benefited from a refurbishment programme during the summer of 2013, which has included upgrades to its IT network, a new staff room and work area, and newly refurbished classrooms.
In November 2015 Somercotes Academy joined Tollbar Multi Academy Trust and more recently Theddlethorpe Community Primary School has agreed to join the Tollbar Family of Academies in September 2016.
