Light Hall School converted to become an academy on 1 August 2011. When its predecessor
school, Light Hall School Specialist Maths and Computing College, was last inspected by Ofsted,
it was judged to be good.
The school is larger than the average-sized secondary school. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported
through school action is broadly average, as is the proportion supported through school action
plus or with a statement of special educational needs.
The proportion of students from minority ethnic heritages is average, with the largest groups
being of Indian and Pakistani origin. The proportion who speak English as an additional language
is below average.
The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional
funding for students in local authority care, those known to be eligible for free school meals and
students who have a parent in the armed forces, is just below the national average.
Five students follow a variety of part-time alternative courses at Solihull Sixth Form College. Four
students attend full-time alternative courses at the James Brindley School, the Fairbridge Trust
or South Birmingham College.
Some students are entered for mathematics GCSE prior to Year 11, the large majority being
entered during their final year.
New subject leaders have been appointed for English, mathematics and science since the school
became an academy.
