Westgate Academy

Learning and Growing Together


On behalf of everyone at Westgate Academy, I’d like to welcome you to our school website and thank you for taking the time to visit.


First opened in 1885, Westgate is a 4-form Junior School situated in the heart of the Bailgate area of Lincoln, close to both Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle.


At Westgate Academy we believe that our core beliefs are intrinsic to the academic and emotional development of the children in our care.  We are committed to working together as a professional team and we are extremely proud of the high standards we achieve in all areas of our children’s development. Our Westgate Values of respect, self- belief, positivity, teamwork and excellence thread through everything we do.


Our curriculum is rich and diverse, and full of opportunities which enable our children to be challenged and inspired to learn. We believe children all have talents, which we must unlock, and our aspiration is that each child achieves their potential in a safe and happy environment.  We believe in close partnerships between the school, parents and the wider community so that our pupils become resilient, confident, and well-rounded individuals.



Westgate Academy is a fully inclusive school working closely with schools in Lincoln. We believe in sharing but also learning good practice from fellow good and outstanding schools.


We encourage you to explore our website and Facebook pages to get a flavour of what life is like at Westgate and learn more about the Westgate Way. Please get in touch if you would like to visit us and have a tour of the school.
