Description of the school

Challney High is a small school near the centre of Luton. Most of its students are drawn from outside its catchment area of Challney. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is high, as is the proportion of minority ethnic pupils. The percentage of pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities is lower than that found nationally. Attainment on entry is well below the national average with a large number of pupils joining the school after Year 7. Challney High has recently been designated a specialist science and mathematics college. It is a training school and has Leading Edge status from the Department for Education and Science.
