School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This school is slightly larger than the average sized secondary school. The school has a sixth form which is much smaller than average. Governors have asked the local authority to consider a proposal that the sixth form should close from July 2015. The council's executive board voted in February 2014 to confirm the intention that the sixth form should close. The council is following statutory process relating to such a proposed change. A final decision will be made by the council's executive board in June 2014.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium1 is below the national average.

The proportion of students that the school has identified as disabled or having special educational needs and requiring support through school action is above average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of educational needs is average.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is well below average. Twenty four students in Years 9, 10 and 11 have individual programmes for their learning which include off-site alternative provision, part-time at Warrington Collegiate, a work skills programme at Employ and tuition at home.

A new headteacher joined the school on 1 May 2014. A deputy headteacher acted as interim headteacher from 1 January 2014 to 30 April 2014.

The school works with Tauheedul Islam Girls' High School in Blackburn to provide a local group of schools with training for middle leaders. Tauheedul Islam Girls' High School is a National Support School.

The school meets the government's current floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for students' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
