Executive Headmaster's Welcome
Skegness Grammar School: an ambitious, Inclusive Grammar School.
Founded in 1483, Skegness Grammar School has built a distinguished reputation for setting standards for the future.
We are a selective, co-educational secondary school, on the beautiful Lincolnshire coast. We value practice, fairness and knowledge. Our school provides students with excellent academic tutoring and prestigious enrichment opportunities with staff that are incredibly hard working, professional and are passionate about imparting expertise in their subjects.
Skegness Grammar School is a community grammar school. We serve all our hard working scholars equally and in doing so we are actively addressing issues of disadvantage. Our mission is to ensure our young people succeed in reaching a top university, excel in their careers and are able to make sound moral choices.
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.
We were established in 1483 by William of Wainfleet, the Lord High Chancellor of England. The school was first sited in Wainfleet and was a feeder school for Magdalen College Oxford, that he had also founded. We maintain a link with Magdalen College to this present day. In 1933 this building closed and the school relocated to Skegness where it now stands.
In 1483 William of Wainfleet gave us our Latin motto: Murus Aeneus Conscientia Sana
Which is translated as : A Sound Conscience Is A Wall Of Brass
We aim to bestow upon all our talented, hard-working young people the strength of character that comes through having a good conscience. We believe that teaching knowledge, in a calm, caring environment, is the best way to achieve that.
We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and finding out more about life at our Grammar School.
