School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
A new Principal has been appointed since the last inspection.

The academy is a member of the Northern Education Trust.

The academy is much smaller than the typical secondary school.

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

The proportion of disadvantaged students supported by the pupil premium is much larger than the national average. The pupil premium is the government's additional funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is very small. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is average.

A very small number of students are placed with one external provider, Raise the Youth, for additional help with their behaviour.

In 2014, the academy met the government's current floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for students' progress and attainment by the end of Year 11.
