Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The school provides a very positive environment for learning which successfully supports the excellent academic and personal development of the students.

Students' achievement is outstanding because they make excellent progress during their time at the school and attain exceptionally high standards by the end of Year 9. The quality of teaching is outstanding, so students make rapid progress. There is a buzz of activity in lessons, and teachers show that they have high expectations of all students.

The school uses excellent procedures to set demanding targets for students, track their progress and provide additional support to ens...ure their rapid progress. Students' behaviour is excellent. They feel very safe, are polite and respectful, and have very positive attitudes to learning.

The school is led and managed exceptionally well. The headteacher, senior leaders and governors have overseen significant improvements in the quality of teaching and students' achievement over the last two years. A wide range of extra activities, particularly in the creative arts and sport, greatly increase students' enjoyment and experience of the school.

Governors are fully effective in holding the school to account for students' progress and the quality of teaching. The school acknowledges that the key challenge is to make even more teaching outstanding.

Information about this school

Brookvale High School converted to become an academy school in July 2012 and is run by the Brookvale Education Trust.

When its predecessor school, Brookvale High School, was last inspected by Ofsted in 2010, it was judged to be good overall. The school is situated on the north west edge of Leicester and shares the same campus as Groby Community College, which is the partner upper school. The school mainly serves the local villages around the Groby area, although a significant number of students come from the city of Leicester.

The school is larger than the average middle-deemed-secondary school. The school was built in 1975 and has been extensively refurbished. The large majority of students are from White British backgrounds.

A small number come from minority ethnic backgrounds, principally from an Indian heritage. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is well below average. A smaller-than-average proportion of students are supported by the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in local authority care, students with a parent in the armed forces and students known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of pupils supported through school action is below average. So, too, is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. No students study alternative courses on other sites, although a couple of classes are taught by teachers from Groby Community College.
