What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly-funded schools in England to raise the attainment and achievement of disadvantaged pupils, and close the gap between them and their peers. It is the school's responsibility to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students in their care.

The school receives funding for students who fall into the following categories:

  • pupils registered as eligible for free school meals, or eligible at any point in the past six years
  • pupils who are registered as a service child
  • looked after children (LAC), or pupils who have been adopted from care


The following figures show the recent performance of our PP students at the end of Year 11, in comparison to students nationally. In 2020 and 2021, students were allocated Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) and Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) respectively for their GCSEs and no national performance tables were produced so we are unable to share data for these cohorts.
