Lincolnshire Educational Trust
The Lincolnshire Educational Trust Limited (LET) was incorporated in August 2014.
The Trust’s mission is twofold: it seeks to develop academies that are schools of first choice through their educational excellence; and, by enhancing life chances for young people though development in academic, cultural and sporting achievements and personal development, to ensure they become confident life-long learners.
Academy Trusts are constituted as charitable companies limited by guarantee and are registered with Companies House. The LET is a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) which allows for a number of academies to be part of the same charitable company with a Board of Directors and a local governing body operating at each academy.
The original University Academy Holbeach Trust was created in September 2011 from the merging of two schools – George Farmer Technology and Language College in Holbeach and St Guthlac School in Crowland. The University Academy is now housed on a single site in Holbeach next to the University of Lincoln Holbeach Campus.
In 2014 Holbeach Primary School asked to join the Trust, and became Holbeach Primary Academy on 1 September 2014.
In 2016, Gosberton House School joined the Trust and became Gosberton House Academy on 1 September 2016.
In 2018 Holbeach Bank Primary School joined the Trust and became Holbeach Bank Academy on 1 June 2018.
The latest school to join the LET is Peele Community College Long Sutton, which became University Academy Long Sutton on 1 July 2019.
