Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

Wilson’s is an average sized school that draws its students from a very wide area. On entry to the school, students’ attainment is well above average, representing its selective nature. The proportions of students with learning difficulties or disabilities and those eligible for free school meals are well below average. Around half the students are from minority ethic heritages. About one in three has English as an additional language although none is at an early stage of language acquisition. The school has specialist status for mathematics and computing and, very recently, for the arts (media).
