School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
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.
