School Description

The school is much smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The school is sponsored by Stephenson College. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. There are very few pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities, including those who have an education, health and care plan, is well above national average. The school uses one alternative provider: Teaching Educationally Creative Kids, based in Coalville. The school works with a range of employers who provide work experience placements that pupils attend weekly. Inspection report: Stephenson Studio School, 26–27 June 2018 Page 9 of 12 The headteacher took up his post in September 2016. Two further senior leaders joined the school at the same time. Five of the seven teachers joined the school in September 2017. Between 2016 and 2017, the school discontinued its 16 to 19 provision for students who had completed their Year 11 in 2016. In September 2017, the very few students who continued their studies at the school beyond Year 11 commenced a new, one-year ‘Step Into’ programme. This provision, which meets the requirements of 16 to 19 study programmes, enables students to complete qualifications in English and mathematics where they have previously underachieved. Students also prepare for their next steps, either in further education, employment with training or in an apprenticeship. This programme has not yet completed its first full year. The school has received support from Babington Academy, which is part of the Learning Without Limits Academy Trust. In 2017, the school did not meet the government’s current floor standards for pupils’ achievement at the end of key stage 4.

Pupil heat map key

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
