Our Academy

Charles Read Academy is a smaller secondary school in the heart of rural Lincolnshire.

Charles Read Academy is an academy in Corby Glen. It serves the villages between Stamford, Bourne and Grantham.


The current school was built as a comprehensive in 1963, and in 1999 it was renamed the Charles Read Academy to perpetuate the tradition of the former grammar school founded in 1669 by the bequest of Charles Read (1604-1669), who became a wealthy shipper in Hull. 


The original grammar school building is now the Willoughby Memorial Gardens. The building was restored in 1965 by the Willoughby Memorial Trust.


Charles Read Academy is part of the David Ross Education Trust.
