It is registered for up to 36 pupils and there are currently 34 pupils aged 11 to 17 years on roll; 27 are boys and seven are girls. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. Seven are looked after in care placements. Inspection report: Denby Grange School, 15–17 January 2019 Page 8 of 11 Pupils are placed at the school by their local authority. Most have been excluded from previous schools or have persistently failed to attend and may have had long periods without any education. The school is part of the Keys Child Care company, which was previously known as the Keys Group. The school’s aim is for pupils to be well prepared to live successfully in the community when they leave school. The school uses one organisation to provide alternative education for its pupils, A2 Change, in Featherstone.
