School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is an above-average size all-through school. It serves pupils living in Wootton, Wootton Fields, Grange Park and the surrounding areas of the Nene Valley Northamptonshire. The great majority of students are of White British heritage, with very few speaking English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils supported through school action, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs, is above average.

There is specialist support for students with Asperger's syndrome and autism who are integrated into mainstream provision for the majority of their time in school.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is below average.

The school accesses additional work-related education for some of its students through Northampton College.

It meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress. The school became an academy in August 2011
