School Description

Marjorie McClure is a slightly larger than average size special school. Pupils come from five London boroughs in addition to Bromley. There are 27 pupils in the post-16 department and very few children in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Around two thirds of pupils are boys. A few pupils are children who are looked after by the local authority. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs for physical disability or medical needs. Some have additional needs associated with sensory or communication difficulties. The school receives additional government funding, pupil premium, for approximately a quarter of its pupils, which is higher than the national average. This is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. The school also receives additional funding for primary school physical education and sport. About three quarters of pupils have a White British background. Very few pupils are at an early stage of speaking English as an additional language. Pupils have access to a range of on-site nursing and therapy services. Wood Lodge is a small off-site residential facility that small groups of older pupils use for short periods in order to develop their self-help skills and to experience community living. The school manages this resource, but it is also used by other Bromley schools and colleges. The school shares a site with Coopers Technology College, an academy that a small minority of pupils in Years 7 to 14 attend for some lessons. Older pupils also attend Bromley College. As Marjorie McClure is recognised as a specialist school for physical development, staff work with five partner schools to develop their skills in supporting pupils with physical difficulties. The headteacher is a local leader of education. The school received a Leading Parent Partnership Award in April 2014.
