Outcomes for Pupils

We have high confidence in our internal tracking systems so would not expect much variation for values marked * when national data is published in the Autumn. Regular external moderation strongly validates internal assessments of learning by staff.

A comparison against the National Average is included in brackets where this data is available.

Former pupils outperformed their peers for the third year running. In 2017/2018, they were slightly more likely than their peers to have reached the expected standard.


We wish to thank parents for helping the school achieve excellent rates of attendance.

School Inspection

The most recent full OFSTED report was carried out on September 12th 2006 in accordance with section 5 of the Education Act 2005. A further interim survey was carried out in 2010. Both inspections saw the school marked the overall effectiveness of the school as Grade 1, or Outstanding.

Lickey End School is an outstanding school that successfully combines the achievement of exceptionally high academic standards with warmth, compassion, care and a great deal of fun.

The school judged itself to be good rather than outstanding; this reticent view reflects the school's critical approach to its work and its very rigorous self evaluation.

Parents are very pleased with what the school offers. One parent commented, "This is an excellent school that delivers a first class education."
