School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The academy is smaller than the average-sized secondary school.

The academy is sponsored by City University and the City of London Corporation. It has been an academy since 2008.

Students from minority ethnic groups make up two thirds of the academy's population. The largest group in the academy are White British students, who make up about one third of the total. Just over half of the students speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of disabled students 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 almost double the national average.

The proportion of students for whom the academy receives the pupil premium is almost three times the national average. This is additional government funding for particular groups of students, including those known to be eligible for free school meals, in the care of the local authority or from service families.

A very small number of students follow alternative courses at Westminster Kingsway College.

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

The school has a breakfast club.

The Principal has been in post since September 2012.
