The Plume School converted to become an academy school in January 2012. When its
predecessor school, of the same name, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good.
The academy is a larger-than-average secondary school with a sixth form. Students are overwhelmingly White British. The proportions of students who speak English as an
additional language and the proportion of students from ethnic minorities are both well below
the national average.
The proportion of students supported through the pupil premium is below average. This includes
students known to be eligible for free school meals and a very small number of students looked
after by the local authority.
The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs at school action is
broadly average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special
educational needs is above average.
The academy meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum
expectations for students' attainment and progress.
The academy provides a breakfast club and a wide range of lunchtime and after-school clubs.
These include sports, music and subject support.
