Kingsford is a large secondary school with more boys than girls. It has grown steadily since its last inspection when it just had pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9. It serves an urban catchment that experiences high levels of socio-economic deprivation and high levels of mobility. The pupil population reflects the diverse multicultural character of the local community. Three quarters of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, a proportion that is far higher than that found nationally. The largest proportions are from Black African, White British, Bangladeshi or Black Caribbean heritages, although over the last two years there has been a significant increase in numbers of pupils from Eastern Europe. Well over half of pupils speak English as an additional language, with 124 pupils at an early stage of learning English; both proportions are very high. The school has a high level of turbulence, with significantly more pupils arriving or leaving than is usual during the course of the school year. Eighty-nine pupils are from families of refugees or asylum seekers. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is twice the national figure. There is a small but significant number of pupils with profound or multiple learning difficulties.
