Eastern High Flourish in Life

Our improvement journey and what we have achieved

Eastern High fell into special measures in December 2014, a year after the amalgamation of its two predecessor schools. Since then a new leadership team and governing body have been established.

GCSE results are improving and the school is making steady progress to come out of special measures, with inspectors in recent monitoring visits finding the quality of teaching improving and the behaviour and ethos around the school showing marked improvements.

The linked 2014 inspection report is our most recent report, but does not reflect the school as it is today.

A summary of the most recent monitoring visit highlights some actions and what we have done to address these.

GCSE Summary

The school has just received its best GCSE results in a long time. Since the schools inception in 2013 results for pupils achieving 5 A* -C GCSE’s have been as follows.


2014 22%
2015 13%
2016 28%

We are proud that in the last year we have doubled our results. There is still a long way to go but the downward trend of results has been reversed. We are also happy to report that 98% or our students gained at least 1 GCSE or equivalent qualification.
We would like to thank the local community for supporting us throughout the transition from the predecessor schools to Eastern High. We are now most definitely on the right track and look forward to a big increase in our results next year.

KS3 Summary

Our main figures in Key stage 3 are found below in the table.

The information shows that the school is improving and going in the right direction. The improvement in Mathematics and English will continue as our focus on Literacy and Numeracy skills is maintained. This focus is highlighted by our curriculum plan with a big emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy skills in Key stage 3.
