Information about this school
City Heights E-ACT Academy opened in September 2013 with its first cohort of Year 7 students. There are 147 students in Year 7 and 109 students in Year 8. The academy is currently much smaller than an average secondary academy.

The academy is led by a principal who is supported by a senior team of one vice principal, two assistant vice principals and a director of business and resources.

The academy is part of the E-ACT academy chain and is in an educational partnership with Dulwich College.

The academy works closely with the London Borough of Lambeth and is involved in partnerships with local schools such as the Windmill cluster.

The academy's specialism is modern foreign languages with a particular focus on Spanish.

Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have very diverse ethnic heritages. Just over one half of the students are eligible for pupil premium funding, which is additional funding provided by the government for disadvantaged students, and this is above the national average.

A small number of Year 7 students benefit from the nationally funded `catch up' programme, which is for students who do not achieve Level 4 in reading or mathematics at the end of their primary schooling.

The number of disabled students and those with special educational needs is currently small and below the national average.

The number of children looked after by the local authority is very small.

The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is well above the national average. This includes students who speak Portuguese, Somali, Arabic, French, Spanish and Polish.

The academy does not make use of any alternative provision.

There is a specialist resource for students with autistic spectrum disorders which is part funded by the London Borough of Lambeth.
