School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Alder Grange is a smaller-than-average-sized secondary school. It is non-selective within a locality that operates a selective system.

The school opened a sixth form in September 2010 which moved into the attractive purpose- built accommodation in February 2011.

From September 2012 the former headteacher became the executive headteacher of the Pennine Lancashire SCITT partnership and now leads the Pennine Lancashire Alliance of 40 schools and the Pennine Lancashire Leadership Academy.

The school's headteacher is supported by a head of school, who has responsibility for the day- to-day running of the school.

The proportion of students who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and those from service families, is in line with the national average.

Approximately 85% of the students are of White British heritage. Just under one tenth are Bangladeshi. For approximately 10% of students their first language is not English.

The proportion of students supported at school action is lower than that found nationally. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average.

Ten students attend off-site provision; four attend medical provision and six students attend the local pupil referral unit.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress.
