§The school

The school is divided into the Sixth Form (Years 12–13), Upper School (Years 10–11) and Lower School (Years 7–9). The Upper school site was previously separate from the Lower School site, however after several years of planning they have now been amalgamated on the previous Upper School site. §Academic record

In 2014, 65% of pupils gained at least 5 GCSEs graded A*-C including English and Maths, a drop from the 2013 results of 73%.

2014 A-level results were slightly below the national average at the higher grades, with 41.3% of grades being A*-B (compared to 52.4% nationally) and 72.5% A*-C (76.7% nationally). The A*-E rate pass rate was slightly above average, at 99.2%, compared to 98.0% nationally. However, all these results were an improvement on the previous three years. §Ofsted Inspections

Ofsted's most recent full inspection of Netherhall School in June 2014 found that the school "requires improvement", as did the following monitoring inspection in November 2014. Ofsted has deemed the school to "require improvement" since November 2012, and its last inspection producing a "good" rating was in April 2008. §Sport

Extracurricular sport includes rugby, football, netball, trampolining, table tennis, triathlon, rounders, hockey, tennis, badminton and athletics.

The Netherhall Sports Centre offers many of the school's indoor and outdoor sports and training facilities to local sports clubs and adult fitness classes. §Leadership

In August 2014, the Chair of Governors wrote to parents and staff to announce that headteacher Caroline McKenney would not be returning in the autumn term, and Kate Evans would become Acting Head, whilst also continuing as Principal of the nearby Bottisham Village College. §
