What the school says...

Converted to an academy 2012

What the parents say...

I have three children at Grey Court and one who will hopefully go in a year or so. We have been thrilled with the environment that Grey Court offers for our children and with what they have achieved while they have been there. I am constantly amazed at the amount of extra time and effort the teachers put in. They always have time for not just the children but for stressed out parents as well! They are always open to new ideas and innovations and this shows in the children's achievements. The school is very well led but does not just rely on an outstanding head as it also has a very strong, capable, senior leadership team.

Special Education Needs

The Special Educational Needs department at Grey Court includes a team of: a SENCO, one full time and one part time SEN teachers, three full time TA's and 4 part time TA's. The team has specialist knowledge in Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and Behaviour Management. SEN pupils in Years 7,8 and 9 follow a fully inclusive education where they may either receive support in the classroom by TA’s, or when required, work individually/ in small groups with SEN teachers. Pupils identified as needing higher levels of teacher input benefit from the smaller class size & TA support in many subjects. English classes are carefully selected using mixed ability groupings to enable peer mentoring, this has been found to encourage the less able pupil and enables the more self conscious students to take an active part in speaking and listening assignments. This has been shown as very effective and is mirrored in our excellent English GCSE results. In years 10 and 11, Grey Court offers pathways which enable pupils to achieve vocational educational qualifications along side core subject GCSE's. The programme of extended work experience has been particularly successfully in raising pupils self esteem whilst preparing them for the work place. Grey Court strives to ensure that each child maximises their potential by the development of close communication and supportive working relationships between pupils, parents and staff.
