Great Wyrley is a larger-than-average sized secondary school. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is above the national average. The pupil premium is the additional funding based predominantly on the number of students known to be eligible for free school meals and a few in local authority care. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is well below the national average. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is well below the national average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is slightly below the national average. The proportion of those supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The school uses South Staffordshire College to provide alternative provision for some students. It also uses VIP Academy, Jane Lane Skills Centre, Independent Learning Centre, together with various businesses which are privately run organisations that offer alternative provision for some students. The school has a nurture group for some Year 7 students that do not find the move from primary school easy and require extra support. Since the previous inspection the school achieved the Information, Advice and Guidance Quality Mark award and the Dyslexia Friendly award.
