School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is a larger than the average-sized secondary school. Most students live locally.

The school day is staggered for different year groups, to support a range of extended-day learning and extra-curricular activities before and after the start of the day. Featherstone High School converted to become an academy school on 1 December 2011. When its predecessor school of the same name was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding.

Almost all students are of minority ethnic heritage, of which Indian, Black African and Pakistani are the largest groups.

The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is much higher than average.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for students in care and those known to be eligible for free school meals) is nearly double the national average. This group represents over half of the school population.

The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs is above the national average and represents one in five students in the school. A small number of Key Stage 4 students attend off-site alternative provision at the Ealing Alternative Academy and West Thames College.

The school holds Leading Edge, Capita Partner and was awarded London Gold club status in the 2013- 2014 academic year. School leaders regularly support other schools at local and national conferences and through regular senior secondments to local schools.

The sixth form was established in 2009, when new accommodation was opened for it.

The school meets the current government floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 11.
