About Carre’s Grammar School

Carre’s is a selective boys’ grammar school for Year 7 to 11 with a mixed sixth form. It is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The sixth form is part of the open-access Sleaford Joint Sixth Form (SJSF), run collaboratively with St George’s Academy. The school draws its students from Sleaford and a wide area surrounding the town. Carre’s makes occasional use of the Leicester Street Intervention Unit, part of St George’s Academy, to provide alternative learning arrangements for students with short-term behavioural needs. The school is a specialist sports college and has operated a shared-use sports hall with North Kesteven District Council since September 2007. It added a second specialism, science, and became a lead school for gifted and talented students in 2009.
