Arnold Hill Academy is much larger than most other secondary schools and has a very large sixth form. A large majority of students are of White British heritage and speak English as their first language. The proportion of students who are disadvantaged and, therefore, supported by the pupil premium is
below average. Pupil premium is additional government funding provided for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.
The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported by the
academy through education health care plans is below average.
A small number of students in Key Stage 4 study work-related courses at training places away from the
academy. These include Stone Soup Academy in Nottingham, Premiere Training in Hyson Green, R.E.A.L Education in Ilkeston and CAST in Newstead Village.
There have been many staff changes this year, with 23 new teachers joining the academy in September
2015. The headteacher took up post in March 2015.
The academy has received support from the Trent Academies Group and has recently undergone a
consultation process to formally join this academy group.
The academy meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for
students' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
