At Grantham School, we value relationships as the key to our success which enables school to be a welcoming safe place for our students to learn and prosper.
At Esland Grantham School we provide a high-quality education in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment that builds a foundation for lifelong learning. We do this by providing a welcoming, happy, nurturing, and supportive learning environment, in which everyone is treated fairly and all achievements are celebrated.
The Grantham team
The team at Esland Grantham School consists of a combination of knowledgeable, proactive, and enthusiastic teaching staff, higher-level teaching assistants, and support assistants. They work alongside the pastoral and senior management team of the school to deliver engaging and exciting lessons to help develop a student’s love of learning. In addition to this, staff are all trained to use therapeutic, mindful, and meaningful strategies to help students with SEND apply themselves and grow to become independent young adults of the future.
Our vision is to develop resilient, responsible, and confident individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential and live fulfilling adult lives.
Esland Grantham School opened in November 2020 and is growing at great speed. We have developed a curriculum that is flexible and meaningful to individual students. The aim of the curriculum is to engage and challenge students both academically and socially so they can make accelerated progress. At Esland Grantham School, we place a strong emphasis on personal development, social communication, and learning. We set high expectations of our students and believe by developing self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence, our students will also have high expectations of themselves.
Outcomes for children
Together at Esland Grantham School, we deliver a vast range of qualifications, including GCSEs and a selection of ASDAN Qualifications, short courses, and vocational courses. Our personalised curriculum helps our students make progress and develop skills and knowledge at a pace and ability that is right for them, whilst also learning and adapting a range of skills and strategies to support them in adult life.
Not only do we have a range of academic lessons and activities, but we also deliver a range of alternative activities, including ‘Duke of Edinburgh’; gardening and horticulture; learning outside the classroom, and independent life skills. Through these activities, students get to visit a range of historical, exciting, and new places and take part in new experiences. In addition to all of this, the students also take part in fundraising activities and have an opportunity to plan, design, and make items that they can sell to raise money for the school, which helps them to understand profit and loss. During their time at Esland Grantham School, our students will gain a wealth of experience in a range of situations and environments.

A complaints procedure allows for both formal and informal complaints.

Key Information & Guidance
In Summer 2023, the School Student Council proposed they would like a school uniform, this was to promote a sense of belonging and pride, a sense of community whilst ensuring equality of status in dress. The Student Council worked closely with the students at the school to develop a new school uniform that all students would be proud of. The school also carefully considered safeguarding, health and safety considerations, and our obligations under the Equality Act 2010, and we have taken account.
Parents and Carers are asked to support their children in this respect by providing the correct uniform marked with their child’s name and to encourage them to look after it. Esland School Grantham have also considered the cost implications for families, and are providing all students with:
- 1 x Jumper
- 2 x Polo Shirts
- 1 x P.E T-Shirt (all with the school logo on)
You will have the option of purchasing more if you require.
We also ask that you support your child in wearing black trousers, or black knee length shirt and black shoes.
If you have any questions about our uniform, or are struggling through financial hardship, please contact us on the details below and we will try and support you.
