What is South Kesteven known for?


strong local

, at the behest of Whitehall (Her Majesty's Government), South Kesteven District Council (South Kesteven) was obliged to provide a site for the travelling community (Romani people) somewhere within South Kesteven. 19 sites were proposed, of which 5 were in or near Market Deeping. An initial public gathering occurred on 11 July in Market Deeping town centre in relation to the sites, outside the council chambers where many people chanted and expressed their opposition. On 27 July 2007, the strong

local opposition to the proposed sites became clear at a public meeting chaired by the local MP (Member of parliament), John Hayes (John Henry Hayes), attended by about 2,000 local residents. Mr Hayes expressed his opposition to the sites within The Deepings, only having Market Deeping as one of the proposed sites within his constituency - the other ones being in Bourne (Bourne, Lincolnshire), Grantham and Stamford (Stamford, Lincolnshire), in the Grantham and Stamford (Grantham and Stamford (UK Parliament constituency)) constituency. The debate and public consultation is ongoing. Education The main secondary school used by the town is the Deepings School (The Deepings School), located in nearby Deeping St. James. This is a well-regarded Academy school with a true-comprehensive intake, built as the Deeping County Secondary Modern School in 1958, becoming a comprehensive in the mid-1970s. The rest of South Kesteven operates the grammar school system, notably at Bourne (Bourne Grammar School). The school had a meningitis (C strain) outbreak in February 1987. The remaining districts of Lincolnshire are Boston (Boston (borough)), East Lindsey, Lincoln (Lincoln, Lincolnshire), South Holland (South Holland, England), South Kesteven, North Kesteven and West Lindsey.

radical plans to split off the south of Kesteven to make a county based on Peterborough. Neighbouring Rutland would have also joined, but instead was consumed by Leicestershire. Geography South Kesteven borders North Kesteven to the north, as far east as Horbling, where the A52 (A52 road) crosses the South Forty-Foot Drain. From there south it borders South Holland (South Holland, Lincolnshire) along the South Forty-Foot Drain, crossing the A151 just west

borders the unitary authority of City of Peterborough (Peterborough). The boundary follows the Welland to Stamford, briefly following the B1443 (B1443 road) (''Barnack (Barnack, Cambridgeshire) Road'') where it skirts the edge of Burghley Park (Burghley House). thumb 140px left Ermine Street at Byard's Leap (File:Ermine Street Roman Road - geograph.org.uk - 95674.jpg) At the point where the railway (Birmingham to Peterborough Line) crosses under the A1, is the corner of two other

Skdc.com Before SKDC in 1974, the local area was represented by Grantham Borough Council, based on St Peters Hill, and West Kesteven Rural District, based on ''Sandon Close''; this became the planning department of SKDC. In November 1973 it was decided to make Grantham the headquarters of SKDC


excellent education

School is the most selective school in the district (for those not living near to Bourne), and gets the best A level results in the district. The district attracts affluent home-owners, having the highest house prices of the Lincolnshire districts, because of the (comparatively) excellent education available with plentiful transport links. However, because of the limited scope of work available, the district is more and more becoming a ''dormitory (Commuter town)'' for people to work in Nottingham (from Grantham) or Peterborough (all four towns). Both these cities have the quality of work, but not the quality of state schools. The low-performing Aveland School in Billingborough confuses admissions in the district as well, because it takes most of its intake from North Kesteven (villages south of Sleaford). The school is officially, but not physically, now part of St George's Academy in Sleaford. School and local statistics at the DfE The district has 51 primary schools and 10 state secondary schools. There are 8 independent schools. Training The district had one of two teacher training colleges in the county until 1978 when Kesteven College of Education, at Stoke Rochford Hall closed; the Hall is now the training centre of the NUT (National Union of Teachers). More recently the district had the Kesteven Agricultural College at Caythorpe Court, in the north of the district. It was taken over by the newly formed University of Lincoln, who prompted closed it one year later in 2002. Due to neighbouring Rutland not having a further education college, it relies on New College Stamford.
