Sessions run on; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Beacon Academy opened on 1 September 2017 as part of the Wellspring Academy Trust. We are an exciting, expanding, inclusive and dynamic secondary academy which places the student at the heart of our provision. Our distinctive ethos of ‘Human Scale Education’ sets us apart from other schools. At Beacon Academy your child will be known as an individual, supported and provided with opportunities to achieve academically and to develop as a young person.

Within our distinctive ethos we provide your child with opportunities, interventions and watch them thrive. We will continue to build upon solid foundations as an academy rated 'Good' by OFSTED. Regional champions in sports, poetry, photography and performing arts are just some examples of how your child will develop those crucial ‘soft skills’ needed to flourish in an ever changing world.

We have outstanding facilities in engineering. As a pioneering member of WISE, we champion girl’s opportunity and achievement within the STEM subjects. All students study engineering from year 7 and immediately develop skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, teamwork and collaboration whilst learning mathematical and scientific concepts.

Parents are choosing Beacon Academy with the knowledge that not only is their child known as an individual and supported but academic progress is also at the heart of our provision. In 2017 the academy achieved a positive Progress 8 score of +0.29 whilst the students also comfortably exceeded their Attainment 8 target.

Ultimately our students will leave as fully rounded young people, who in addition to their qualifications and references can present portfolios evidencing wider skills. This can range from building a rocket car to being an award winning member of a stage crew. Beacon Academy students, like the school itself, will have a Unique Selling point which makes them stand out from the crowd.

Humberston Our School

We are an 11-16 Academy with capacity for 810 but due to our popularity, this has increased to beyond 850 in order to support the Local Authority. Over recent years we have seen good results in GCSE subjects year on year and we are one of the highest performing Academies in the Authority.

The last Oftsed reports says that; "Students make an outstanding contribution to their community. They take an active role through their involvement on the Student Leadership Team and House Councils. Students have regular meetings with the Senior Leadership Team and feel they have a voice at a strategic level which can help bring about changes in the Academy."


Humberston Academy opened as a mixed 11-16 comprehensive school in 1977, moving to its present site in 1979. We have extensive playing fields, the usual range of specialist teaching rooms, grouped according to subject, as well as six computer rooms; all specialist teaching rooms have interactive whiteboards; all teaching staff have laptops. Specialist status in Maths and Computing was gained in 2006. As the Academy has been consistently oversubscribed, we reached the physical limits of our accommodation many years ago.
Humberston Park Special School
Schools / Secondary
01472 590645
St Thomas Close , Grimsby , North East Lincolnshire , DN36 4HS

Sessions run on; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

We welcome parents, with relatives or friends to visit the school as often as they feel necessary to get as good an idea as possible about how we work.

There is an OPEN ACCESS policy for parents of children attending the school which means they can visit the school whenever they wish without any prior appointment to observe their child’s activities.

This is not, however, for consultation meetings. We hold Annual Review meetings for all children, 6 monthly meetings for younger children and we can arrange additional times for parents to meet with teachers or other staff as required.

We are here to:

Provide a high quality needs led, balanced education which will maximise the pupil’s potential in the areas of Communication and Cognition, their Personal and Social development as well as their Physical and Sensory capabilities.

We will respect and recognise the contributions and achievements of all pupils as individuals in a safe and caring environment.

The schools aim is to engage children in enjoyable learning activities that are of functional value to them now and in their future lives.

We see the essential areas of this activity to be:
• Developing children’s ability to communicate and interact meaningfully
• Improving children’s Physical abilities
• Enabling children and young people to develop Personally, Socially and Emotionally

We believe that this is best achieved for our pupils by an Integrated approach to Education, Therapy and Care and close partnership with Parents and Carers.

This approach has to be based on the individual’s needs rather than the need to comply with the demands of a general curriculum.

Currently we can cater for 42 students at Phoenix House and 48 students at Park House. There are photos in our galleries of the facilities on each site, so please take a moment to enjoy them. They are proof of our children’s endless capacity to improve and to overcome their problems, when given the right help.

Academy Profile

Tollbar became an Academy on 1 September 2010 and remains an 'outstanding' provider of education being confirmed as outstanding in all four categories by Ofsted in November 2013.

Tollbar Academy is an 11-19 mixed comprehensive of some 2163 students which incorporates our Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College. The Academy lies on the border of North East Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire, being situated one mile south of Grimsby. The students traditionally come from surrounding Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire villages which are mainly dormitory villages for Grimsby and the South Bank industrial estates. The vast majority of the housing in the area is privately owned. The original School was opened in 1937 for 300 pupils, other buildings were erected in the 1970s and there have been a number of recent additions of specialist accommodation, particularly in the 6th Form.

The curriculum organisation of the Academy is based on Curriculum Areas, each having a suite of rooms within the various teaching blocks. The Curriculum Areas are: English, Maths, Science, Art, Business, ICT, Citizenship, History, Geography, R.E., Modern Languages, Music, P.E., Special Needs and Technology.

Pastoral care in the Academy is organised on a 'vertical' House System. Heads of House and their teams work to the Senior Pastoral managers. There is a Director and Assistant Director of Sixth Form. All teachers are House Tutors or 6th Form Tutors and take initial responsibility for the pastoral and academic care of the students.

The Academy operates an Equal Preference Admission Policy, which means that it attracts students from a wide area.
