Overton Grange School: an Academy committed to providing excellent secondary education for the local community.
Overton Grange School is a co-educational community of approximately 1,300 11-19 year old students. It places great emphasis on high academic and vocational standards and has at its heart the development of the whole person. In June 2011 the School converted from being a secondary school run by the London Borough of Sutton to 'Academy Status' (an independent state school run by the Department for Education). This means they have more control over the curriculum and resources but remain absolutely committed to high quality non-selective education for local Sutton children.
Expectations are high and the achievement of the individual is celebrated. Overton Grange provides a supportive atmosphere based on self-discipline, mutual respect, co-operation and understanding. Students are encouraged to take responsibility both for their own learning and for the environment in which they live.
"Safeguarding procedures are excellent. Students feel safe in the school, understand the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and work well together to support their successful and happy school community." (OFSTED)
The Sixth Form is an exceptional feature of the school.
"Students' achievements and their enjoyment of their learning in the Sixth Form are outstanding. Relative to their starting points students make exceptionally good progress in both academic and vocational strands. Success rates are very high as nearly all students complete their courses and obtain good passes." (OFSTED)
