Louth Academy is a co-educational comprehensive serving Louth and the surrounding area with approximately 850 students across two sites. It was formed from two schools, Monk’s Dyke Tennyson College and Cordeaux Academy. Cordeaux Academy has become Louth Lower and educates Year 7 and 8 students with Louth Upper on Monk’s Dyke road educating students from Years 9, 10 and 11. A sixth form is planned for September 2019 operating from the Upper campus.
Louth Academy benefits from being part of the Tollbar Family of Academies. The Trust has a strong track record in turning round failing schools as can be seen by the successful outcomes at Cleethorpes and Somercotes Academies as well as the significant improvements already seen at Louth Academy this academic year.
The Trust has supported the new Academy with a completely new senior leadership team as well as new teachers and support staff. There has also been a major programme of refurbishment on both sites at Louth Academy due to significant financial support from Lincolnshire County Council and Tollbar Multi Academy Trust. This has meant that students now have a first class learning environment that matches the standard of accommodation that exists at all of the Tollbar Family of Academies.
