Sir John Gleed School is a co-educational secondary school with academy status located in Spalding, Lincolnshire, England.

The school was formed in November 2011 as a result of a merger of Gleed Boys' School and Gleed Girls' Technology College.[1] The two schools were merged because falling rolls were forecast in this part of Lincolnshire.[2] It is named after Sir John Wilson Gleed, M.A., J.P. (1865-1946) who was Chairman of the Holland Education Committee and of Holland County Council. He was knighted for political and public service by King George VI on 13 June 1939.[3]

The school gained academy status in January 2013. The academy is part of the CfBT Schools Trust.[1] The school operates a vocational sixth form. The school was placed in "special measures" by Ofsted on 10 June 2013, having been judged "inadequate" for achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management.[4][5]

It is hoped that by joining forces educational standards could be improved, a wider curriculum offered and the school’s future secured at a time when pupil numbers are expected to fall.
