School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is larger than the average-sized secondary school with a sixth form.

Rickmansworth School converted to become an academy school on 1 April 2011. When the predecessor school, of the same name, was last inspected it was judged to be good.

The school has been through a period of significant change at senior leadership level. Since January 2013, there have been two successive interim headteachers, the second of which took up his post in September 2013. The school is presently also supported by an interim executive headteacher.

The school is part way through a building programme, aimed at improving the existing accommodation.

The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, children looked after by the local authority and other groups, is much lower than the national average.

The school receives additional government funds for the small proportion of students now in Year 7 who did not achieve the expected Level 4 in English or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.

The large majority of students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students who are from minority ethnic backgrounds is similar to the national average. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is lower than the national average.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs who are supported at school action is below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs is well below average.

A small number of students attend off-site provision at West Hertfordshire College.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum levels expected for students' attainment and progress.
