Information about this school – Wallington County Grammar School

Wallington County Grammar School converted to academy status in June 2011.

It is an academically selective academy, of average size. It caters for boys in Years 7 to 11 and is coeducational in the sixth form.

In 2011 the academy became a Leading Edge Partnership School, working with other schools to raise achievement. It is also a member of the Challenge Partnership programme and of PiXL 6, which is a collaboration of school leaders with a focus on the sixth form.

The academy belongs to the Sutton Partnership of Secondary Schools.

Although leaders and teachers share good practice between the partnership schools, provision for the academy’s students is concentrated on-site and does not include alternative provision.

It has two specialisms: science and applied learning.

The school exceeds current government floor standards, which set the minimum standards for attainment and progress.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for Pupil Premium, which provides additional funding for students in local care and students known to be eligible for free school meals, is very small, as are the proportions of disabled students and students with special educational needs.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is high, as is the proportion of students whose first language is not English. Few, however, are in the early stages of English acquisition.
