Following an Ofsted inspection in May 2015 the school was rated 'Requires Improvement'.[1]

School history[edit]

The school building was originally built for the Great Yarmouth High School for Girls which moved from Trafalgar Road in Great Yarmouth to the new building in 1957. It became the coeducational Gorleston Grammar School in 1970. In 2015, the school became Lynn Grove Academy.

The school's own website and senior staff both promote a friendly, safe environment for pupils regardless of sexuality, gender, race, religion or any other general feature.

The school joined the Creative Education Trust in 2015.
