Higham Lane School and Sixth Form College is a large, 11-18 comprehensive academy, set on an attractive site on the Warwickshire-Leicestershire border, easily accessible due to excellent road, train and bus connections. The school and sixth form college forms part of the CEAT trust and schools within our small trust work closely together bringing many benefits to both students and staff.

We offer an ambitious, broad and balanced knowledge curriculum where we value equally achievement in all its forms: artistic, academic, social, cultural, sporting and intellectual. All students achieve well at Higham Lane School, and in 2023 our Progress 8 figure was 0.56 which is testament to how well students, teachers and parents/carers work together effectively. We are committed to ensuring that an ambitious curriculum, combined with evidence-informed teaching and learning, and excellent behaviour from students make Higham Lane School a thriving environment for all that work and study here. Our Progress 8 figure for 2023 puts us in the top 6% of state-funded mainstream schools for progress, which we are delighted with, and we are committed to building upon this fantastic achievement for our students.
We were extremely pleased to have been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted in May 2019, one of only a small number of schools in England to have achieved the highest rating that year. We are also delighted that we continue to achieve impressive A level results in our high-performing Sixth Form with an average grade of B- placing the school within the top 4 mainstream Sixth Form schools in Warwickshire and the highest-performing in North Warwickshire, which again shows how students, staff and parents/carers work together effectively. In July 2021, we were granted World Class Schools status, one of a very small number of schools to achieve this.
We are also very excited to be opening a new free school, Higham Lane North Academy, in September 2025. Just a mile away from Higham Lane School, there will be exciting opportunities for the two secondary schools, as part of the wider trust, to work together with many mutual benefits for both students and staff.
Higham Lane School and Sixth Form College has a strong ethos based on mutual respect between students and staff and very clear expectations regarding students’ effort and behaviour. We enjoy an excellent reputation with parents/carers and are always over-subscribed. You will find a happy, caring and purposeful environment at Higham Lane. Students get on exceptionally well, both with each other and with our staff, who take pride in working here. Our students are encouraged to do their very best in every aspect of their lives and to reach the highest standards, irrespective of their ability. We encourage them to ‘Work Hard, Be Kind and Take Responsibility within the overall aim to “Be the best you can be!”
