School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Abraham Darby is an average-sized secondary school with a small but growing sixth form.

The current Principal took up his post in September 2014, as did two Vice Principals.

Most students are of White British heritage and a very small minority of students speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of students who are disadvantaged and supported by the pupil premium (additional funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and for those who are looked after by the local authority) is well above the national average.

The proportion of disabled students or those who have special educational needs is close to the national average.

The academy meets the current floor standards, which set out the government's minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress.

Since its last inspection in 2011, the academy has grown by more than 200 students.

A small number of students in Years 10 and 11 take vocational courses off site, provided by Nova Training, Arthog Outreach and Telford Drive.

Abraham Darby Academy is federated with Adams Grammar School, Newport. Both schools are part of the Haberdashers' Adams' Federation, they share a single governing body and are sponsored by the Haberdashers' Company.
