School Description

The school caters for secondary-age students who have autistic spectrum conditions, or behavioural, social or emotional needs. All have a statement of special educational needs. Almost all students are from a White British background, and the vast majority are boys. About 40% have joined the school later than the start of Year 7. The proportion of students for whom the school receives additional pupil premium government funding is above average. This is for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority. Additional funding is also received for a small number of Year 7 students to catch up in their English and mathematics. The school enters students early to sit French GCSE so that they are then able to take Spanish GSCE two years later. The school coordinates the work of an outreach team who provide a range of special educational needs support services to local mainstream and special schools. Goldwyn has a vocational centre on site which runs courses for its own students and about 60 students from mainstream schools. The school’s Global Dimensions programme links students and staff to other schools in Europe, Africa and Asia using funding from the British Council. The school achieved an Arts Award in 2012. To extend their learning opportunities, some students spend part of each week with the following alternative providers: The Brook, Baked Boutique, Seal of Approval, Catch 22 Charity, Write Trak, Cycle Circle and Challenger Troop.
