We are situated in Lytham St. Annes, North West England, near the popular seaside resort of Blackpool. The school has a long and proud history of excellence since opening in 1955 as Ansdell County Secondary School.
In 1999 we gained Technology College status from the Technology Colleges Trust leading to the name change of Lytham St. Annes High Technology College.
In 2007 we gained dual status as a Performing Arts College.
We have now changed our name to LSA Technology & Performing Arts College. Technology and Performing Arts College status.
In 2010 we became an International School with global links.
We have now become a Trust School. We are a foundation school supported by a charity, referred to as a Trust, which owns the land and buildings and appoints some of the Governors. The Trust is a registered Charity. It exists to enhance the education of students at the school and to promote community cohesion. Our Partners are Blackpool and the Fylde College, The Dukes Theatre, NHS North Lancshire, University of Central Lancashire and Fylde Coast YMCA.
LSA Technology and Performing Arts College is a community school maintained by Lancashire County Education Authority.
We are an 11 - 18 Comprehensive and 6 Form Centre, offering seven years of successful education. As one of the largest schools in Lancashire, we can offer a wide range of curricular & extra-curricular activities, along with Technology and Performing Arts College status.
We have been awarded Outstanding School 2009/10 status by Ofsted.
A College system ensures that students belong to smaller groups throughout school ensuring a continuity of staff and allowing family members and friendship groups to be kept together.
Our Sixth Form offers unrivalled opportunities for students. Here, in our caring, supportive and technologically advanced environment, each individual is known and valued.
Our Pyramid Clubs and Peer Mentoring, by a group of Year 8s and 6 formers, protect our young students from feeling scared of 'big school', help them make friends, find their way around and quickly settle in.
Our size does mean, though, a wonderfully wide ranging curriculum and excellent facilities. The specialisms of Technology and Performing Arts enhance the opportunities offered to our students throughout their seven years of education.
Our 6th Form Centre, with its post 16 educational opportunities on the campus, encourages an increase in social activity across the age-range and presents young adult role models to younger students.
LSA has been awardedExtended School status because of the provision on offer to our students, families and the wider community for providing a safe place for students before and after the school day, extra curricular activities, study facilities and assistance/guidance for parents when a need is identified. There is a dedicated area on our website for extended school.
