Information about the school – Beths Grammar School

Beths Grammar School is a boys’ selective academy which admits girls into the sixth form. It is larger than the average secondary school.

It converted to academy status in October 2010, keeping the same name as its predecessor school. It formed the Academy Trust under which it operates as an individual academy with its own governing body. It has retained emphases on technology, including mathematics, science and design and technology, and on languages, which were the specialist subjects in its predecessor school.

One quarter of students are from a minority ethnic group, the largest being of Black African heritage, but fewer pupils than average speak a first language other than English.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is well below average.

There is specialist provision for autism for up to eight students, with seven currently on roll. The proportion of students who are disabled or have special educational needs is below average, as are the proportions of students supported through school action, school action plus or a statement of special educational needs.

The academy exceeds the government’s current floor standard which sets the minimum expectation for students’ attainment and progress.

The headteacher is a National Leader of Education and the academy is a National Support School and Leadership Partner School, which involves providing support for other schools.
