School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is similar in size to the average-sized secondary school. It became an Academy on 1 July 2011, immediately before the previous inspection.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in the care of the local authority, for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those from service families, is well below average.

A below average proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, while an average proportion speaks English as an additional language.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported at school action is well below average as is the proportion supported at school action plus and with a statement of special educational needs.

A very small number of students temporarily attend off-site provision at the West Cumbria Achievement Zone. Nine Year 11 students attend vocational courses at the Lakes College. The school was awarded specialist status in science and mathematics in 2003. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set out the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

The school has a boarding house for 50 students. This was inspected separately in July 2013 and the report is published on the Ofsted website. The headteacher was appointed in September 2012.
