Downhills Primary School

Place  From 1901  To 2012

Categories: Education

Multi-national school with 94% of its pupils drawn from ethnic minorities and 70% taught English as an additional language. In 2012, the then Education Secretary Michael Gove cited that the school had failed to meet minimum targets for the percentage of 11-year-olds reaching the required standard in maths and English for five years in succession. Teachers and parents pointed to the fact that it had reached the target in its previous year and was on the up. In spite of great local opposition it was taken over by the Harris Federation and changed its name to the Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane.
