Regents Academy is an independent school based in Manby, Lincolnshire, England. The school was founded in 1992 by Amanda Franklin and her husband, Stephen Franklin, a pastor in a local church. The school takes both male and female pupils from ages 3 to 19, in a current roll of 46.

History[edit]

The original site for the school was in the Franklin’s home, Locksley Hall, North Somercotes, Lincolnshire. The school moved to new premises in Manby Park, Lincolnshire in 1995.[1] Manby Park is a business park on the site of a former RAF base. In November 2004 the school expanded, opening a dedicated IT centre in Bowen house, a building next door to the main school. The School recently changed name from Locksley Christian School.

Education[edit]

Regents Academy uses the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum rather than the UK’s national curriculum. The qualification gained through this system is the 'International Certificate of Christian Education' which has been designated by the ICCE Board as equivalent to A-level, AS-level, GCSE higher tier and GCSE foundation.[2] The school offers GCSEs in some circumstances. The curriculum uses individual workbooks (called PACEs) for each unit of work.[3] At the end of each unit the pupil takes a test on which they must achieve a score of 80% or higher in order to advance to the next unit.

The school is separated into two learning centres based on pupil age and ability. Each learning centre has a supervisor, who provides academic assistance and motivation for pupils, and a monitor who performs administration tasks.[4] A core curriculum includes mathematics, English, social studies, science and word building (etymology), provided through the ACE curriculum. Expanded curriculum lessons provide group-based activities in subject areas such as ICT, practical science, creative English, literature, history, art, music, devotions, drama, dance, and physical education.[5]

Regents is affiliated with Christian Education Europe[6] the central body for schools using the ACE curriculum in Europe,[7] and has achieved CEE model school status since July 2006. Older pupils compete in the European Student Convention, a yearly event organised by CEE and which features events in categories including academics, art, drama, music and sport.[8]

Regents provides education for those with special educational needs; a large minority of its pupils have Special Educational Needs statements.

The school has a sports field and a playground. Indoor sporting facilities are provided by a nearby gym hired by the school.

Houses[edit]

Pupils are split into four houses named after significant scientists: Kepler (yellow), Faraday (blue), Newton (green), and Pascal (red). Houses compete for points, won through house members completing various achievements.

Inspections[edit]

The school was last inspected by Ofsted in February 2011. Ofsted’s rates areas of a school as inadequate, satisfactory, good or outstanding. The school achieved at least good in all areas and was rated outstanding in welfare and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.[9]
