School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than most other secondary schools. The falling number on roll reflects the demographic trend.

Most students are of White British heritage and speak English as their first language.

The proportion of students known to be disadvantaged and, therefore, supported through the pupil premium is below average. (The pupil premium is additional government funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, and those children that are looked after by the local authority).

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below average.

The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

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

A few students are educated off-site at Derby College.

The school works in partnership with the Belper Headteachers' Consortium in order to drive school improvement in areas such as attendance. It is also part of the Ripley Heanor Learning Community and, together with five other local schools, meets termly to discuss alternative provision.

Most sixth form students have been educated at the school throughout Key Stages 3 and 4.

A new headteacher was appointed in September 2013.
