Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding paid to schools in respect of students who are: registered as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), or have been registered for FSM at any point in the last six years or students who have been looked after continuously by the local authority for more than 1 day.  

In 2016 at the end of KS3, Pupil Premium students performed in line with their peers at Nonsuch.  At the end of KS4 in their GCSEs, they achieved a Progress 8 score of 1.0 well above that of the whole school score of 0.73 for which the school was congratulated by the Regional Schools Commissioner, Dominic Herrington.

In 2017 KS3 pupils continued to perform in line with their peers. For their GCSEs whilst Pupil Premium students made greater progress than that of Pupil Premium students nationally, a gap appeared between the 9 PP students and the year group as a whole as the final progress 8 score was 1.1 and for PP students it was 0.61. For Pupil Premium students the Progress score for English and Maths was very pleasing at 0.87 for English and 0.76 for Maths.

For 2019, our Admissions policy provides 35 places for Pupil Premium students as top priority for over-subscription, after the mandatory priority for looked after children, and allows a 10% reduction in the entrance test pass mark of up to 10% to enable these places to be filed.
