Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding aimed at students from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that students from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non‚Äźdeprived peers. The Pupil Premium is provided in order to support these students in reaching their potential by accelerating their progress.

The Government has used students entitled to Free School Meals and those who are looked after as an indicator for deprivation. They have given a fixed amount of money to schools per student, based on the number of students registered for Free School Meals and who are looked after by the local authority. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.


We are renowned, both locally and nationally for our consistently high standards of academic performance. Our students and staff work extremely well together to achieve impressive outcomes year on year.

In 2017, our students achieved the best A Level results the School has ever seen and we were recognised by the Sunday Times as ‘North West State Secondary School of the Year.’


Due to the Government cancelling the Summer Examinations 2020, the following tables are the Centre Assessed Grades for both GCSE and A Level awarded to our students by The Blue Coat School.
