Our academy is a small rural primary academy which caters for girls and boys aged four to eleven. It has a warm and friendly atmosphere and forms a vital part of village life. There are 76 pupils on roll. The academy mainly serves the villages of North Thoresby, Grainsby and Waithe but children from the villages of Brigsley, Fulstow, Holton-le-Clay, Ludborough and Louth also attend.
There has been a school in North Thoresby for nearly 200 years. One of the earliest records of schools in the village is that of 1818 which records the Mapletoft Charity School in Church Lane. In 1856 the Wesleyan Methodists built a day school next to the chapel. Later, in the 1880’s the day school became a board school, and, finally a local education authority school. Primary education continued in this building until 1985 when the present building was opened.
