School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Aston University Engineering Academy opened as a University Technical College in September 2012. It occupies high quality purpose-built accommodation. In the first year students were accepted only into Years 10 and 12 from schools covering a wide geographical area. There are now students in all year groups. The academy operates an extended day Tuesday to Thursday.

The academy is much smaller than the average-sized secondary school.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups and the proportion who speak English as an additional language is well above the national average. Students come from a wide range of ethnic groups.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs at school action (students who need extra support with their learning) is above average. The proportion at school action plus, or who have a statement of special educational needs, is also above average.

The proportion of students supported through the pupil premium is above the national average.

This is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, and those who are looked after. A few Key Stage 4 students access full-time learning at the St George's Opportunities Hub in Nechells, Birmingham.

The academy has not been open long enough for students to take the examinations that are used to evaluate whether it has met the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress.
