    Baines’ School is a school in Poulton-Le-Fylde , Lancashire . It was founded through James Baines’ will in 1717 and is a former grammar school. [2]

    It was one of three schools set up in Baines’ will, [3] the others being at Marton [4] and Thornton. [5]

    In the mid-19th century, the school was teaching around 100 pupils without charging fees. Baines’ will also provided payments to the poor of the area and apprenticeships. [6]

    Notable former pupils

    • Michael P Barnett , chemist and computer scientist
    • Arnold Beckett , pharmacist, and expert on doping in sport
    • Daniel Whiston , professional ice skater
    • Thomas McArdle, athlete
    • Ian Stuart Donaldson , lead singer of Skrewdriver

    Oftead report 2015

    The school was branded as “requiring improvement” by Ofsted inspectors, after they found a “significant reduction in staff” and “a decline in the quality of teaching and achievement” compared to the last inspection in 2011.

    Inspectors found

    1. Since the last inspection, there have been significant changes to, and reduction, in staff. This was the major contributory factor in a decline in the quality of teaching and achievement.

    2. Compared to good schools, too few pupils make better progress than expected from their starting points.

    3. The progress of pupils across subjects is variable. Most notably, progress in English and science is not as strong as many other subjects.
