About us

Springwell Alternative Academy Lincoln is a Specialist Alternative Provision for pupils with Social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We provide education for pupils from KS1 through to KS4 (Y1-Y11). Pupils in KS4 will usually stay with us until the end of Y11 but for pupils in KS1-3 (Y1-9) we are a short stay provision. This means that we will work with our pupils to try to reintegrate them back into a Mainstream school or support a transition to an appropriate Special School setting.
There is no set time for this process and it will depend on each individual child or young person’s needs. Regardless of their next steps we aim for pupils to leave Springwell feeling valued and successful.

Welcome from the Executive Principal

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you to Springwell Alternative Academy. My name is Lisa Ashcroft-Day and I am Executive Principal of Springwell Alternative Academy Lincoln and Springwell Alternative Academy Mablethorpe. We were very fortunate to have opened 2 new purpose built schools in 2019 and we are incredibly proud of the opportunities we are able to provide to support our pupils to move successfully on to the next stage of their education. At Springwell our values are fundamental to everything we do. We believe in second chances, trauma informed practice, unconditional positive regard and a culture of nurture and support. Our aim is to work with our pupils to identify their needs and provide the best possible opportunities for all our pupils to develop and thrive in a climate of support, guidance and authentic care.
We value the support of all of our families and believe that if we work in partnership, understand the collective challenges and face them together then we can really make a difference.
