School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Balcarras School is larger than the average-sized secondary school. It became a teaching school in May 2012. There are 20 schools in the partnership. The school provides initial teacher education training through the school direct route. Almost all students are of White British heritage and the percentage of students from minority ethnic groups or who speak English as an additional language is lower than the national average.

The proportion of students eligible for additional government funding, known as the pupil premium, is below average. In this school this funding is used to support children in the care of the local authority and those known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs who need extra support is below the national average, as is the proportion of students who need more extra support or who have a statement of special educational needs.

The school does not use any off-site training provider.

The school meets the government's current floor standard, which is the minimum level expected for students' attainment and progress for secondary schools. Balcarras School converted to become an academy school on July 2011. When its predecessor school, Balcarras School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding.
