Information about this school

Highlands School is larger than the average secondary school. There are slightly more girls than boys at the school. Approximately half of the students come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups; almost all of these students speak English as their first language.

One in six students benefits from the pupil premium, which is below the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding provided for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children looked after by the local authority and those with a parent serving in the armed forces. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. A specially-resourced provision supports eight hearing-impaired students who learn alongside other students in the main school. Additional support for these students is provided in small groups by specialist staff.

Fewer than one in ten students receive catch-up support in Year 7 to improve their reading and mathematics to the standard expected at the end of primary school. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress. Small numbers of students are taught away from the school at Enfield College and Capel Manor College.
