About Higham Lane School

Higham Lane 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.

Achievement in all its forms: artistic, academic, social, cultural, sporting and intellectual is equally valued in our diverse five-year, knowledge-rich curriculum. 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 enormously proud to have performed in the top 20% (yes that’s top 20%!) of schools in England for student progress at GCSE in 2019. (As you are aware, schools have not published results for 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic). We are also delighted to have achieved impressive A level results in our high-performing Sixth Form. Our progress figures indicate that our teaching and learning and student behaviour and engagement are excellent! We are also delighted that the Department for Education has given us permission to open a new secondary Free School, Higham Lane North Academy, within the next few years after we have formed a new Multi Academy Trust. In July 2021, we were granted World Class Schools status, one of a very small number of schools to achieve this.

Our school 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 “Be the best you can be!”

At Higham Lane, our staff are our most precious resource. We are committed to offering you:
• excellent continuous professional development
• reduced workload
• behaviour for learning that empowers teachers to teach and students to learn
• a range of imaginative approaches to ensure staff wellbeing.
