Ofsted school description
Quintin Kynaston School is a larger than average, oversubscribed, mixed school. There are more boys than girls. The proportion of students eligible for free school meals, at nearly 50%, is well above the national average. Many students are resident in areas which are considered economically disadvantaged. Approximately 40% of students have learning difficulties and/or disabilities; this is well above average, as is the proportion of students with a statement of special educational needs. These are predominantly moderate learning difficulties and difficulties in the areas of behavioural, emotional or social development.
At 90%, the proportion of students from minority ethnic heritages is well above the national average. There is a very rich and diverse ethnic mix in the school which includes students from Bangladeshi, White British and other White groups, African and many other ethnic heritages. An appreciable number of students are from refugee or asylum seeker families. Approximately three quarters of the students speak English as an additional language and a fair number are at an early stage of English language acquisition. Predominant languages spoken by these students are Arabic, Albanian and Somali. The school has had specialist status as a Technology College since 2001 and has a Healthy School Award. It is also a full service extended school.
