Rutlish School is an above-average-sized secondary school with a specialism in mathematics and
computing. The school shares a joint sixth form with a neighbouring girls' school on both sites.
The sixth form was opened in 2010.
Almost a third of students are of White British heritage, with a small but significant number of
Pakistani, Asian and African students. The proportion of students who speak English as an
additional language is well above national averages.
The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported by
school action is above national averages. The proportion of students supported by school action
plus or with a statement of special educational needs is in line with national averages. The
majority of these are for behaviour, emotional and social difficulties, specific learning difficulties
and speech, language and communication needs.
The proportion of students in receipt of the pupil premium, which provides additional
government funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who
are looked after by the local authority and children from service families, is above average.
Currently, there are two children from service families and very few in local authority care.
Approximately one fifth of Year 7 students are eligible for the catch-up programme for students
who did not achieve the expected level in English at the end of Key Stage 2.
A small number of students attend alternative provision off-site programmes at the Smart Centre
in Morden and Education Excellence in Croydon.
The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations
for students' attainment and progress.
