Tudor Grange Samworth Academy, A Church of England School, previously known as Samworth Enterprise Academy, is a school with Academy status located in Leicester, England. It is a co-educational school for 3-16 year olds that specialises in Food, Business and Enterprise. The school was created on the site of the Mary Linwood Comprehensive School which closed in 1997. It opened in 2007[1] under the co-sponsorship of the Church of England and businessman Sir David Samworth,[2] and incorporates a fully functioning church.[3]

The school became part of the Tudor Grange Academies Trust in January 2016. [4]

Inadequate rating and special measures[edit]

In September 2014, after poor GCSE results, the original head Pat Dubas resigned,[5] and a new interim head was appointed.[6] An Ofsted report in June 2015, classified the school as "inadequate in almost all areas" and placing it into special measures.[7][8]

Alleged malpractice[edit]

In July 2016, a whistleblower alleged that the members of staff had been engaging in malpractice by helping students during GCSE examinations and having access to examination papers prior to the start of public examinations. The claims are currently being investigated by the Joint Council for Qualifications. [9]
