School Description

Pioneer House High School opened as an academy free school in September 2016. This school was set up to develop ‘confident, independent young people who enjoy life and make a positive contribution to their community’. It is one of the six schools that form a multi-academy trust. The chief executive officer of Prospere Learning Trust oversees the six schools. The school is governed by a local governing body which reports to the board of trustees. Pioneer House High School moved to a purpose-built new building two years ago. It has a range of facilities, including a one-bedroom bungalow, polytunnel, wooded area and play areas. Inspection report: Pioneer House High School, 8 to 9 May 2019 Page 10 of 13 The school caters for pupils with SEND. All the pupils have education, health and care plans. All the pupils have significant learning difficulties. Some pupils also have autistic spectrum conditions, while others are hearing impaired. The majority of pupils join the school from mainstream schools at Years 7 and 12, although the first three intakes have seen pupils joining in all year groups. In the first two years after the school opened, a significant number of pupils joined the school from Piper Hill School, a specialist support school within the multi-academy trust. Most recently, pupils have joined from a range of other providers, including special schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision. Currently, most pupils who attend the school are placed by Manchester local authority. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is well above the national average. A very small number of pupils are looked after by the local authority. Most pupils are of White British heritage. A small proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. The majority of pupils are boys.
