Information about the school – Bushey Meads School

Bushey Meads became an academy on the 1 February 2012 and is part of the Bushey Meads St James Academy Trust, which includes a partner primary school. The academy is larger than the average secondary school. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is in line with the national average, although rising rapidly. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is above average and so is the proportion who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is above average. The academy hosts a unit designated for integrating students with physical and neurological impairments. Academic outcomes have been significantly above the government’s minimum floor standards for secondary schools since the last inspection in 2007.
