Sandown Bay Academy on the Isle of Wight will now be put back into special measures after a highly critical Ofsted report. It rated the school's leadership and management as "inadequate" and said the quality of teaching required improvement.
It's the first time the school has been inspected since December 2015 and comes as those in charge of the school plan to merge it with another secondary in Ryde seven miles away.
Inspectors said pupils have been 'let down' for too long and have not made enough progress. They criticised inconsistent teaching and poor management as well as saying that too many pupils are persistently absent.
The academy chain which runs the school - AET - the Academies Enterprise Trust - said they were very aware of the issues.
However, the report does highlight some positive aspects of the school including specialist provision for pupils with autism, the behaviour of pupils around the school and the strong sense of community support.
