Year 7 Catch Up

The Year 7 Catch Up Funding is a government initiative designed to target resources on those students who have not achieved level 4 or above in Reading and/or Maths.

The Department for Education (DfE) provides us with an additional £500 for each student so we can deliver extra support to help these students to ‘catch up’.

Students’ outcomes are good. A significant proportion of students typically attain the highest grades, including at A* to B, at A Level.

Leaders’ plans to support the pastoral transition of pupils from primary school are thorough. Year 7 pupils with whom Inspectors spoke were positive about the school.
