Skegness Grammar School

We produce well-rounded individuals, and take pride in their personal achievements. Our students aspire to high academic success, whilst enjoying a variety of extra curricular opportunities.


At Skegness Grammar School we are privileged to have developed longstanding partnerships with a number of national and international organisations.

The extensive enrichment opportunities that we provide for students are a real source of pride for us. Find out more about each of our partners below:

Education Business Partnership

Skegness Grammar School has worked closely with the Lincolnshire and Rutland Education Business Partnership over the past few years.

We are committed to developing business links with the local and wider business partnerships.

Through the partnership, students take part in enterprise challenges involving real life problem solving from business scenarios. The aim is to enable pupils to gain more awareness of possible career opportunities available to them.


LAMDA stands for the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.

This prestigious examining board offers qualifications in various levels to individuals wishing to develop their talents in a variety of areas. Mr Ian Mann is a qualified LAMDA teacher and spends one day per week in school delivering lessons to individuals, pairs or small groups.

Embassy Theatre

The original Embassy building, first known as The Piazza, has stood dominating Grand Parade at Skegness since 1926.

Skegness Grammar School has established links with the Embassy Centre, which hosts our annual Speech Day. We have many pupils who perform there in both school led productions and those organised by the Janice Sutton Theatre School. Janice has produced summer season full production shows and cabaret for over 25 years on the East Coast first at the Derbyshire Miners Holiday Centre, Butlins Family Resort and now at The Embassy Theatre Skegness.

Skegness Grammar forged links with Accra Girls’ Senior High School (AGISS), Ghana, as part of the International Inspiration programme run by the Youth Sport Trust and the British Council.

Our school worked with AGISS to build a sporting legacy, aiming to increase participation in sports lessons at AGISS whilst developing the leadership skills of our students.
