Abbotsfield School for Boys is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. Provision for 16 to 19
study programmes was established in September 2012.
The school has specialisms in mathematics and computing, combined with applied learning. A little over half of the pupils are from White British, Irish or `other White' or `mixed White' backgrounds.
The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is well above the national average.
The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is above the national average. The government
provides additional funding to support these pupils because they are at particular risk of underachieving.
The school has resourced provision for a small number of pupils who have autistic spectrum disorders. All provision for pupils on alternative programmes is arranged by the school. A very small number of
pupils follow courses with various providers off-site, and a small proportion attend the on-site provision.
A small minority of pupils in key stage 4 and in the sixth form follow vocational courses at the school. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for
pupils' attainment and progress.
The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
