Information about this school
This is a much larger than the average sized upper school.

The school converted to academy status in April 2012. When the predecessor school, Harlington Upper School, Central Bedfordshire was last inspected its overall effectiveness was judged to be good.

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

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average.

Most pupils come from White British backgrounds, with the remainder coming from a range of minority ethnic groups.

A very small number of students attend part-time alternative provision at Bedfordshire College or Active Sports, which allows them to access a course in carpentry or sports leadership away from the school site.

The school has a specialist resource base to support pupils with a hearing impairment, which currently has 18 students on roll.

The school belongs to the Harlington Area Schools Trust (HAST), a partnership with 2 middle schools and 6 lower schools.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
