Welcome to the St Lawrence academy

The St Lawrence Academy is a small academy for 11-16 year old boys and girls of all abilities. We strive to be an outstanding academy meeting the needs of all our learners in an inclusive, caring environment. We are sponsored by the Church of England Diocese of Lincoln with a strong Christian ethos. We welcome students from all backgrounds and faiths, regardless of ability. Choosing the right secondary school for your child is an important decision and it is important you think about the choices carefully.  All parents want the very best for their children and the certainty that they will be encouraged to reach the highest standards possible, gaining the skills, qualifications and confidence to fulfil their dreams and ambitions.
We aim for the academy to be at the heart of our local community where we will always be the first choice for our families. We want to work in partnership with all our parents/carers to create a positive learning culture where success is expected and celebrated.  We have an open door policy, with very clear structures and we want to welcome you into The St Lawrence Academy.  Your children are as important to us as they are to you, so they will do better if we work together.

Weekly Prayer,

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Amen

 

What’s happening around the houses…

In Gold house we encourage each other to live life to all its fullness – we endeavour to live out the academy core values of Generosity, Respect, Justice, Forgiveness and Truth each and every day.  Gold Students are expected to work to the very best of their abilities in lessons and to participate in competitions and activities with great enthusiasm.  We do this in order to develop our skills, resilience and all the other characteristics that we need to succeed in life.  We choose to be the very best we can be – the people God made us to be!

Turquoise

The House Leader for Turquoise is Mrs D McBride

As turquoise house leader I would like to promote our core values of Generosity, Respect, Justice, Forgiveness and Truth to all students by offering a programme of extra curricular activities which can transform lives, develop tenacity and promote teamwork. This will be developed through a series of opportunities based around physical recreation, hobbies and sport. As house leader I would like to provide the opportunity for all students to access activities which are of interest to them ranging from art and crafts, to performing arts, music, computer based activities as well as the physical sporting activities. It would be most pleasing to see students develop their interests and perhaps have a go at activities they have not thought about or engaged in before. The specific aim is to engage students and develop them into well rounded, confident individuals, whilst preparing them for their adult lives.

Amethyst

The House Leader for Amethyst is Mrs N Choudhry

My aims are to promote our core values of Generosity, Respect, Justice, Forgiveness and Truth to help foster and encourage a positive and productive culture that is student-centered as well as deeply rooted with our core Christian values.

I hope to ensure that faith and spirituality are not seen as passive, distant topics for our students and staff but in fact with the use of appropriate media, discussion and dialogue and practical action it can help shape questioning and tolerance of our young people. My role will be helping to promote social justice and causes within Scunthorpe as well as nationally and internationally allowing our young people to develop into positive citizens that are empowered and passionate about our Academy community and wider society.
