Information about this school

This is a smaller-than-average-sized secondary school. The Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School was inspected by Ofsted in 2009. At that time it was judged to be outstanding.

It converted to an academy in 2011. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is in line with the national average. The largest groups represented are of Black African heritage.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for looked-after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families) is below average. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the Year 7 'catch-up premium' is below average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average.
