"Small enough to care, big enough to count"
Humberston Academy has been named the top performing secondary school in North East Lincolnshire, after the publication of the Department for Education’s School Performance Tables in January 2017.
After celebrating another set of impressive GCSE results in Summer 2016, the academy has now topped the region’s performance rankings across three out of the four key government measures.
Matt Watling, Principal, said: “Last year Humberston Academy was named in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress and attainment, and I am delighted that we are continuing to exceed and excel.”
The tables, which compare the 2016 GCSE results of secondary schools and academies across England saw the academy being ranked at the top of the tables for Progress 8, Attainment 8 and the percentage of students that achieve the English Baccalaureate.
Mr Watling continued: “These results shows that not only are our students making above average progress during their time at Humberston Academy, they are also achieving top grades in the traditionally harder subjects."

At Humberston we are proud to be a leading education provider in our local community. We seek to broaden the horizons of each and every one of our students helping them to achieve at the highest level both academically and within their talents outside the classroom, upholding our vision of Excellence for All.
We understand that every student needs a strong academic foundation in order to achieve their full potential. At our Academy we combine an innovative curriculum with a strong house structure which ensures that students receive all the support and guidance they need to succeed.
At Humberston the values of respect and good behaviour are instilled from the outset and a high attendance is a priority ensuring that students leave the Academy as young people that the whole community can be proud of, is a crucial part of our educational offer.
Over the last few years Humberston Academy has continued to strengthen and develop but we do not rest on our previous successes. We are pround of the significant investment that has been made in our buildings and environment and the impact that this is having on our students.
Our focus is on first class teaching and recruiting outstanding practitioners. Quality teachers are the people who inspire our students to great things.
