Spalding’s newest primary school, Wygate Park Academy, is on schedule to welcome its first pupils in September with building work almost complete.
The academy, which is part of The Boston Witham Academies Federation, has seen 51 applications for places, although only eight of these were first preference.
So far Lincolnshire County Council has filled 22 of the 30 places available.
Parents began receiving offers for school places last week and have until May 20 to appeal if they are not happy with the school offered for their child.
Construction work on the new academy has been carried out by Holbeach firm Langwith Builders and is in the final stages with coloured cladding due to go up shortly.
Adrian Reed, executive headteacher of the Boston WItham Academies Federation said: “We pride ourselves on working in partnership with parents/carers and the community to offer a comprehensive, broad and flexible curriculum to children of all abilities.
“We place great emphasis on providing a caring environment for your child, supporting them in their personal development meeting all their needs, as well as ensuring that each and every child reaches and often exceeds their academic potential.
“As Executive Headteacher of this federation, I will ensure that through this partnership, all children and students receive the care, guidance and support necessary to ensure the very best education for children from birth to 18.”
The Boston Witham Academies Federation includes Carlton Road Children’s Centre, Carlton Road Academy, Haven High Academy and Sixth Form Centre and Staniland Academy.
