School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Chesterton Community College Academy (commonly known as Chesterton Community College) converted to become an academy school in July 2011. When its predecessor school, also known as Chesterton Community College, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good.

It is an average-sized secondary school, and a specialist humanities college.

The new headteacher took up her post in September 2013.

The large majority of the students come from White heritage backgrounds, mainly White British.

A few come from Mixed or Asian and Asian British backgrounds. The largest minority heritage group is of Bangladeshi students. A very few come from a variety of other heritage backgrounds.

Most students speak English as their first language, but the proportion who speak English as an additional language is above average. Only a few Key Stage 3 students, who joined the school in September 2013, are at an early stage of English language development.

The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for particular groups, including those known to be eligible for free school meals) is average.

The proportion of disabled students or those who have special educational needs supported through school action is average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus, or who have a statement of special educational needs, is below average.

Most students receiving additional support experience moderate learning difficulty, behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, and specific learning difficulty. A few others experience a range of difficulties including speech, language and communication needs, hearing difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder.

A very few students may receive alternative provision through the local authority at The County School, a pupil referral unit. The school also has close links with The Castle School, a special school located close by.

The school meets the current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for the attainment and progress of students by the end of Year 11.
