School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Bedlingtonshire Community High School is smaller than the average size secondary school. It provides a wide range of sixth form courses for over 150 students.

Almost all students are of White British heritage.

A below average proportion of students has disabilities or special educational needs.

The proportion of students who are disadvantaged and supported through the pupil premium is above average. The pupil premium is additional funding for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority.

A small number of students attend specialist alternative provision off site at EOTAS, Choysez and at Skills 4U, where they work in small groups. A few more attend Learn-Fit to train as sport coaches or Northumberland College for vocational courses.

Recently, there have been many staffing changes and members of staff absent.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress.

The school receives assistance from Cramlington Learning Village and Whitley Bay High School to improve the quality of teaching.
