Sir John Gleed School is a mixed secondary school and sixth form 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 was converted to academy status in January 2013 and it is now part of the CfBT Schools Trust.[1] The school operates a vocational sixth form. It was placed in "special measures" by Ofsted on 10 June 2013 ;having been judged as being "inadequate" for achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behavior and safety of pupils, 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.
