Description of the school

Ashmole is a larger than average secondary school. The school is popular and over-subscribed. It takes students from the full range of ability but overall the attainment of students when they start the school is above average. Students come from a wide range of minority ethnic heritages and a greater than usual number of students speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students with learning difficulties and disabilities is broadly average, while the proportion of students entitled to free school meals is below average. Student mobility in and out of the school is low. The school acquired specialist status in science in 2002 and has recently acquired a second specialism in music. The school moved into new buildings in 2004. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
