Frederick Gough School is a community secondary school located in Scunthorpe, England for pupils aged 11 to 16.

The school was opened in 1960 as Ashby and then Bottesford Grammar School, being renamed Frederick Gough Grammar School after Alderman Frederick Gough, the first Chairman of Governors of the school. It became a comprehensive school in 1969, linking with Ashby Girls' Secondary School.

Frederick Gough school has been known as a "Specialist Languages College", but that title was recently disowned. The school does still offer a variety of languages, teaching Spanish, French, German and Russian.

The school has a pupil population of around 1000.

In 2014 the school benefited from BSF (Building Schools for the Future), a programme introduced by the government. From this it received new toilets, a 3G Sports Pitch, a new sports block and hall and a new English block from which all students benefit.
