Information about this school – Nonsuch High School for Girls

Nonsuch High School for Girls is a larger than average selective secondary school. It converted to academy status in June 2011. The predecessor school, which was known by the same name, was judged good overall when last inspected by Ofsted.

The school is currently led by two acting headteachers who will revert to their substantive posts when the new headteacher arrives in September 2013.

The school holds specialist status for science and languages.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported at school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is low compared to the national figure.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is higher than the national average, as are the proportions who speak English as an additional language.

The percentage of students attending the school who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, those who are looked after, or those with a parent in the armed services) is much lower than the national average.

The school does not currently make any alternative provision arrangements for students through other education providers.

The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for attainment and progress.
