School Description

The Peak Academy was opened in September 2012 as part of a federation with Greenfield Academy. Both special schools were sponsored by Academies Enterprise Trust (AET). On 1 April 2015, the schools officially changed sponsor to the White Horse Federation (WHF). Both schools share the same location and website under the banner of the Peak Academy. This is a special school for students with social, emotional and mental health needs (SEHM). All students have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan related to SEHM. Students often also have other additional difficulties, which have resulted in multiple permanent exclusions from other schools in the county. Since September 2014, almost all Year 11 students have been educated off site in alternative provision in an annexe several miles from the main school. The staff at the annexe are employed by the school. In addition, the school has previously made use of Bridge Training, Gloucester Young People, The Door Youth Project, the Launchpad, Gloucestershire Mentoring and Support (GMAS), and home tuition. A very small number of Year 10 students are educated off site at GMAS. The vast majority of students are boys. The large majority of students are of White British heritage and very few speak English as an additional language. Just over 50% of students are eligible for support through the pupil premium. The pupil premium is additional government funding for children in the care of the local authority and students known to be eligible for free school meals. The school does not enter students early for GCSE examinations.
