Ernesford Grange Community School is a specialist Science College that was previously known as Ernesford Grange School & Community College. It is a mixed secondary comprehensive school with sixth form facilities in the Ernesford Grange area of Coventry, England. It is of average size nationally with over 1,000 students, but falling in recent years.
The school has a very mixed catchment area and, as such, is above the national average for proportion of students receiving free school meals and students with special educational needs. Despite the fact that most students enter the school with below average Key Stage 2 results, Key Stage 3 and 4 results are above that of similar schools. Value added scores show how well the school is doing.
It is a major part of the Riverside partnership which links several schools in the local area into a consortium to offer a wider range of subjects at A Level. The school motto is "Together we Achieve".
The school was built in 1972 as one of the first suburban community colleges in the country. Over the past few years, the school has been through major changes in both structure and organisation. Many of the blocks have been rebuilt or renovated and the timetable has been rearranged. In 2005, it gained specialist school status in science and is currently the only specialist Science College in the city. The name was changed in 2005 to reflect the Specialist Science status
