School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Lea Manor High School is larger than the average-sized secondary school and has specialist status in performing arts.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is well above the national average.

A large proportion of students speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of students supported by the pupil premium is well above average. This additional funding is for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, in local authority care, or with a parent in the armed forces.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 11.

Alongside their GCSE subjects, a very small number of students attend courses at a range of different providers, including ACE, Active Support, Angling for Success, Apollo, Burnell Training, Eastern Training, First Place, KWS, On Track and Seeds for Change.

The school runs a specially resourced provision for students with special educational needs. This specialist unit caters for up to eight students who have autism and social communication difficulties.

The headteacher was appointed in September 2013.
