University Academy Holbeach is an academy based in Holbeach, Lincolnshire in England.

The academy was established in 2011 following the closure of The St Guthlac's School in Crowland and George Farmer Technology and Language College in Holbeach (formerly named George Farmer Secondary School). The academy has been created with the sponsorship of the University of Lincoln which already runs its National Centre for Food Manufacturing directly next to the campus site of the former George Farmer Technology and Language College in Holbeach.

The creation of the academy has been controversial particularly in the Crowland area as the town will no longer have its own Secondary Education institution.

The new school building was completed on the old George Farmer site on 4 November 2013.[1]
