Brookvale High School converted to become an academy school in July 2012 and is run by the
Brookvale Education Trust. When its predecessor school, Brookvale High School, was last
inspected by Ofsted in 2010, it was judged to be good overall.
The school is situated on the north west edge of Leicester and shares the same campus as
Groby Community College, which is the partner upper school.
The school mainly serves the local villages around the Groby area, although a significant number
of students come from the city of Leicester.
The school is larger than the average middle-deemed-secondary school. The school was built in 1975 and has been extensively refurbished. The large majority of students are from White British backgrounds. A small number come from
minority ethnic backgrounds, principally from an Indian heritage.
The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is well below average. A smaller-than-average proportion of students are supported by the pupil premium, which
provides additional funding for children in local authority care, students with a parent in the
armed forces and students known to be eligible for free school meals.
The proportion of pupils supported through school action is below average. So, too, is the
proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs.
No students study alternative courses on other sites, although a couple of classes are taught by
teachers from Groby Community College.
