School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Abbey Hill Academy converted to become an academy school in August 2013. When its predecessor school, Abbey Hill School and Technology College, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall. The academy is part of the Horizons Specialist Academy Trust (HSAT).

All students have a statement of special educational need or education health care plan. It provides for students with moderate, severe, profound and complex learning difficulties or autistic spectrum condition.

There are significantly more boys on roll than girls. The proportion of disadvantaged students, those supported by the pupil premium, is much higher than average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority. The academy provides a nurture group for a small number of students with social and emotional needs.

Most students are of White British heritage. Very few students are from minority ethnic backgrounds and speak English as an additional language.

The academy works in partnership with Westlands and Green Gates Academies through the academy trust.

The academy uses no alternative provision.

A chief executive leads the academy. Two principals support her, one for the main academy and one in the sixth form.
