School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The academy is a smaller than average-sized secondary school with a very small sixth form. It is a member of the Ormiston group of academies.

The large majority of students are White British. The proportion from minority ethnic backgrounds is slightly below the national average, as is the proportion who speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of students who are disadvantaged and supported by the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority, is well above the national average.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is well above the national average.

The academy houses a specially resourced provision for special educational needs. This facility, called the ASCEND unit, which is funded by the local authority, supports 15 students with a statement of special educational needs and who have extreme emotional and behavioural difficulties.

A number of students attend alternative off-site provision at the Motorvations Centre in Romford.

Approximately half of students in the sixth form complete some of their qualifications at South Essex College as part of a partnership arrangement.

In 2014, the academy did not meet the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 11.

The current Interim Principal took up his position in September 2014. A large number of teachers have left the school since the end of the last academic year, and there have been significant changes in middle leadership.

The academy's governing body was reconstituted at the beginning of the current academic year.
