Information about this school – Highworth Grammar School

The school is larger than the average-sized secondary school.

The proportion of girls on roll is well above the national average because only girls attend the school in Key Stages 3 and 4.

Approximately 6% of the students are eligible for support through the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in the care of the local authority, those known to be eligible for free school meals and the children of service families. This figure is well below the national average. There are very few students in the care of the local authority and from service families.

Most of the students are White British.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is well below the national average, as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs.

The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

Highworth Grammar School converted to become an academy school on 1 January 2011. When its predecessor school, with the same name, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding overall.
