Information about this school – Devonport High School for Girls

Devonport High School for Girls is a smaller than average-sized grammar school which converted to become an academy on 1 April 2011. When its predecessor school, also called Devonport High School for Girls, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good.  The school is part of a local consortium, The Link Partnership, which allows sixth formers to access a wider range of A-level subjects. Most students are White British. The number of students from a minority ethnic background is small and few speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs, and are supported through school action, is low. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is very low. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in local authority care, children from service families and for students known to be eligible for free school meals, is low. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress by the end of Key Stage 4. The school is a specialist language college and a Leading Edge school.
