The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is currently paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
- registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
- been in care for 6 months or longer
In 2015/16 the College received £100,530 to support disadvantaged students including £4,083 to support those disadvantaged in Physical Education
