South Axholme Academy is situated in the heart of the thriving market town of Epworth with easy access to Doncaster, Gainsborough and Scunthorpe. The Academy attracts students from the Isle of Axholme, South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire and has served these communities since 1961. The Academy is set in pleasant grounds occupying a quiet, rural position including playing fields and games areas which extend to nearly fifteen acres.
South Axholme School was established in 1961. Since then the school has been extended and is currently able to cater for approximately 930 students. In 2012 South Axholme Community School converted to South Axholme Academy. In the summer of 2013, South Axholme Academy became the lead in a small multi-academy trust, Isle Education Trust. Isle Education Trust now comprises South Axholme Academy, Epworth Primary Academy and Coritani Academy. In September 2015, the Academy opened its Sixth Form, offering education to students from 11 to 18 for the first time in its history.
The Academy’s success is built upon its emphasis on both high standards and care for the individual. We aim to offer a safe, exciting and friendly base from which to explore the world. We recognise that all students are different and it is our aim to give each student that which is best suited for his or her individual needs: academic, creative, sporting or social.
South Axholme Academy is committed to training the teachers and professionals of tomorrow. As well as working with Hungerhill ITT, the academy is a leading partner in North Lincolnshire SCITT programme and has formal links with Sheffield Hallam, Lincoln Bishop Grosseteste and Hull University.
