Description of the school

Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls is a selective school which is similar in size to most other secondary schools. Over half of the students are White British, with other students from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds. The largest groups are Indian, Pakistani and Caribbean. The proportion of students for whom English is an additional language is above the average but none are at an early stage of learning English. The proportions of students eligible for free schools meals and those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities are low. Approximately 30% of students in the sixth form qualify for the educational maintenance allowance. Students come from a very wide area, taking in much of Birmingham and beyond. The school became a specialist science college in September 2004. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
