The expectation is that LMS will appoint at least one primary and one secondary Lead School. Where a Lead School is an academy, the expectation is that their academy trust should also be involved in the Hub’s work. Where appropriate, we should additionally appoint specialist Lead Schools (a special school and/or alternative provision for example). 

LMS is seeking one primary and one secondary Lead School for the following districts from September 2024 initially for one academic year:

•    East Lindsey 
•    Boston and South Holland
•    South Kesteven
•    City of Lincoln and North Kesteven
•    West Lindsey and North Kesteven

We are also seeking at least one specialist Lead School (a special schools and/or alternative provision for example) to cover the county. 

As part of the process, LMS will ensure that a cross range of school settings are represented e.g. rural, urban, selective, non-elective and academy etc.
