Welcome to Lindsworth School a provision in which all staff work together to support pupils develop their academic and social skills whist encouraging growth in their emotional and mental health well-being. We are a staff team who have high expectations of each and every pupil who attend, inspiring them to achieve success to support them in the next phase of their education, training or employment. We are committed to creating well rounded individuals and believe that in order to do this, we must adopt the philosophy that “One size fits NONE”.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which provides pupils with a wealth of opportunities to expand their experiences. Individualisation is a key focus in all aspects of school life from individualised lessons to behaviour targets and intervention packages for those requiring extra support.

We are proud of the relationships we have built over the years with pupils, parents and a variety of external agencies and this has strengthened the collaborative work and the provision on offer to our pupils.


As a whole school we constantly reflect on our practices and use this to focus improvement and drive initiatives which will enhance the provision. This has taken us through a range of notable achievements such as improving teaching and learning, securing a “Good” from Ofsted and federating with Springfield House School. The federation will enable us to explore ways to further develop the offer in both schools.


All the pupils who attend our school are unique however one key factor we believe they all have in common is “they are all capable of amazing things” and at Lindsworth we create an aspirational culture to facilitate this, where success is celebrated.


We hope you find the website information informative, if you do require any further please do not hesitate to contact us.

Lindsworth Vs the Forge Football Match

The Fifth fixture of the 2019-2020 Season, but first game of the New Year occurred on Monday 20th January 2020: against The Forge, at Home.

This time the team consisted mainly of year 11s who had been eager to play since the start of the season but had been unable to due to work commitments. The boys were excited for the game and the fixture went ahead as planned with an 11am K.O.

Lindsworth lost the coin toss and the opposition decided they wanted to kick off. The change in squad did not lead to a change in the current standard of Lindsworth games for the lions to score the first goal. There was another goal scored by their opponents soon after in retaliation. Lindsworth then took the lead after about 10 minutes of the first half, before conceding another two goals through unforced errors by half time.

The manager had a brief but direct discussion with the Lions at half time and told them to step their game up as they were not being themselves, did not appear to be enjoying it and were not giving a true account of themselves to their opposition. This spurred them into a completely different team in the second half as they went on to score another seven goals, meaning the final score was 9-3. Goal of the game came from substitute D. WS who had sat the first half out, with the plan of saving him for the second half when people were getting tired. He did not disappoint, a graceful touch round his defender and an immaculate strike into the “top bin” (corner)  before ending the game on another goal off his butt cheek, before Year 7 wonder boy J. T stepped up and sealed the game with a nutmeg to the keeper for the final goal.

The final goal tally was:

  • T. G x 4,
  • D. P x 1,
  • J. C x 1,
  • D. WS x 2,
  • J. T x 1,

This gave the Lions a final result of Lindsworth 9 vs The Forge 3.

Squad of the day: T. G (Captain), F. W, D. W (GK), J. T, D. B, C. G, M. E, J. C, D. P, D. WS.

Man of the Match: D. WS

Currently the School are 2nd in the league with 15 points: 5 games played and 4 games still left to play. The Lions are still doing incredibly well and making the school and PE staff very proud.
