Humberston Academy

Humberston is an outstanding academy proud of our exceptionally high standards and traditional ethos. We offer a diverse enrichment programme in order to develop skills outside of the classroom.

Academy Information

We are an outstanding Academy and proud of our exceptionally high standards and traditional values. 

At Humberston Academy we celebrate strong outcomes for our incredible students. 

The well-being of our students is paramount and the heart of every decision we make. Our highly skilled pastoral support team demonstrates warmth and kindness. 

Our school community is important to us and the safety of our students is top of our agenda.
Dan Shoubridge, Principal, said: “I am proud and delighted that we are continuing to exceed and excel with an unwavering student centred approach.”

We continue to demonstrate a consistent and outstanding approach to education with exceptionally high standards and traditional ethos. However, it is not all about academic achievement; we are also passionate about enrichment in order to develop skills outside of the classroom. Our recent Eco Schools Status and Rainbow Flag accreditation are examples of this. We are a growing, oversubscribed, hard-working academy, with a positive, business-like and purposeful atmosphere where students can develop and broaden their horizons. 

Humberston proudly offers

  • Outstanding behaviour
  • An ethos of mutual respect and love of learning
  • Outstanding teaching and learning
  • A caring environment
  • Every student is treated as individual
  • Broadening horizons by being part of the David Ross Educational Trust, which provides the students with exceptional sporting and cultural opportunities.

Our Ethos

Excellence for all through broadening students' horizons through outstanding academic education, focused enrichment and sporting opportunities. 

We are proud to embrace our ‘Broadening Horizon Values’, Aspiration; always aiming high, Ambition; being the best we can be, Courage; nothing holds us back and Respect; always leading by example.

At Humberston Academy, 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 Academy, the values of respect, traditional manners 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 proud 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.
