At Grantham School, we value relationships as the key to our success which enables school to be a welcoming safe place for our pupils 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 fulfilled 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 pupils 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 pupils and believe by developing self-confidence, self-esteem and independence, our pupils 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, we also deliver a range of alternative activities, including ‘Duke of Edinburgh’; gardening and horticultural; 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.
