Information about this school – The Norton Knatchbull School

The school converted to an academy in April 2012. It is a slightly larger than the average-size secondary school.

The school caters for boys in Years 7 to 11. The sixth form is co-educational; girls make up about one fifth of the sixth form roll.

The school is selective on intake in Year 7. The ability of boys on entry is in the top 25% of the Kent ability range.

Around one fifth of students are from minority ethnic backgrounds; the largest group is of Nepalese heritage.

A below-average proportion of students are eligible for the pupil premium.

The proportion of disabled students and those supported through school action is below average. The proportion of students supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average.

The standards achieved by students exceed the government’s current floor standard which sets the minimum expected levels for students’ attainment and progress.

A very small number of students attend off-site provision.
