School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Discovery Academy is larger than the average secondary school. It is part of the College Academies Trust sponsored by Stoke-on-Trent College.

The principal joined the school in December 2015 and the vice-principal in January 2016.

Most pupils attending the school are White British, with a much lower than average proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is well above average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is lower than the national average. In 2015 the school met the government's floor standards, which set out the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress.
