School Description

Tregonwell is a multi-academy trust formed over the last two years with provision for supporting pupils with emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. There are three different educational settings or services in the academy. They are the Nigel Bowes campus for primary-aged pupils, the Petersfield Campus for secondary pupils, and the Throop Learning Centre for pupils with significant emotional or medical needs. Tregonwell converted to become an academy in September 2011. When its predecessor school, The Bicknell School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good. The multi-academy trust has an executive headteacher and there are heads of school in the primary and secondary settings. The governing body is the trust board of the multi-academy. Each setting also has a smaller board to assist in the governance. Almost all pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The vast majority of pupils have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. A minority have autism spectrum disorders. Some pupils have a combination of these. Most pupils are from a White British background and speak English as their first language. Around 80% of the pupils are boys. There are around 60 pupils permanently on the academy roll, but up to 151 pupils from a number of primary and secondary schools, who may not be solely on the academy roll, attend various sessions at the academy as part of ‘alternative learning programmes’. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is well above average. This is government funding that the academy receives for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, those who are in local authority care and the children of military personnel.
