School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
George Salter Academy is a much larger than average secondary school for pupils and learners aged 11 to 19. George Salter became an academy in September 2007 and is sponsored by the Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT). The vice principal at the previous inspection is now the school's principal.

The large post-16 centre is part of a consortium with three other sixth form centres (Bristnall Hall Academy, Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy and Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School).

The number of pupils eligible for support from the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government) is above the national average.

The percentage of pupils from minority ethnic groups is above average. A large proportion come from Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi backgrounds. Almost a third of pupils are White British.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability or an education, health and care plan is in line with the national average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The school sends a few pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11 to The Hub, Smethwick Enterprise Centre; The Allotment, Wednesbury on a part-time basis for additional courses and alternative provision in construction and horticulture.

The school operates an Inclusion Centre and breakfast club on site for a small number of pupils.
