We wish you a very warm welcome to Westgate Academy website and thank you for taking the time to visit.
The school has been in existence since 1893 when it was a boys only school. Now, in 2021, we are a 4-form Junior School situated in the heart of the Bailgate area of Lincoln and we are lucky to be within the backdrop of Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle.
At Westgate Academy we believe that our core beliefs are intrinsic to the academic, emotional and characteristic 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.
Please explore our website and facebook pages to get a flavour of what life is like at Westgate!
The Year 5 children have enjoyed their unit of learning, for Reading, based on 'Demon Dentist' by David Walliams. As a final challenge, we asked them to create a character of their own, who would fit into the story's plot. We had some great illustrations! An incredible variety of heroes, villains, weird and wonderful characters, who could have been the inventions of David Walliams himself. Well done Year 5, we've loved seeing your imagination run away with you!
