As well as work in the classroom, there is a committed and effective focus on ensuring strong attendance for disadvantaged students. We also make sure that disadvantaged students can benefit from all the opportunities open to them at Fitzharrys.
The 2016 results for pupil premium students at Fitzharrys were back to the record breaking results of 2014, with a particularly strong performance in maths and English, but also across all the subjects that pupil premium students took at GCSE. In maths, pupil premium students did about a third of a grade better than other students. In English they were at least as good. With solid levels of performance in Years 7-10, we know that there is strength in depth at Fitzharrys and that our students are getting the support and challenge that they need and deserve from the start.
As with all groups of students, the Fitzharrys Governors pay close attention to the progress and success of all pupil premium students.
