Information about this school

Tanbridge House School is a larger-than-average secondary school. The school has specialisms in science, mathematics, and information and communication technology (ICT).

The school has been awarded the status of a UNICEF level 1 Rights Respecting School. Almost all students speak English as their first language. There are very few students from a minority ethnic heritage.

A below-average proportion of students are looked after or known to be eligible for free school meals, for whom the school receives additional money known as 'pupil premium'. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs, supported at school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs, is above average. The most common needs relate to specific learning or behaviour, emotional and social difficulties and speech, language and communication needs.

The school uses off-site provision for a few students at local colleges, including Brinsbury College and Central Sussex College. There is also provision on-site for hair and beauty and construction courses in a building known as 'The Lodge'. The school exceeds the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress.
