About Us

Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy (LHEA) is a state-funded non-selective, all-ability, non-denominational secondary school, one of 102 institutions to successfully bid for free school status in the summer of 2012.

It opened its doors to pupils in September 2014.

The school is sponsored by its sister institution – the outstanding Lynch Hill School Primary Academy – and both schools are part of the Learning Alliance Academy Trust.

Like other free schools we are subject to the same Ofsted inspections as state schools; although free schools are given certain freedoms, we are committed to following the national curriculum and to only employing well qualified teaching staff.

Currently located on the primary academy’s Garrard Road site, LHEA will move to a new state-of-the-art campus at Stoke Road, due to open in 2016/17.

Every year we will introduce a new year group, until 2019 when we will be a complete school.

The headteacher is Jane Everton, formerly deputy headteacher at Cressex Community School in High Wycombe and, previously, advanced skills teacher, leadership coach, assistant head, department head and English teacher.

The executive headteacher is Gillian Coffey, OBE, fellow at the National College of School Leadership and primary head for the past 18 years.

We pride ourselves on the expertise of our teaching staff, a safe and supportive atmosphere for pupils, a broad and balanced curriculum (complemented by a programe of Enterprise and STEM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and the high standards we expect of our students and ourselves.
