Inadequate progress has been made at Carlton Community College since it was placed into 'special measures' by school inspectors.
The school, on Royston Lane, was deemed a 'failing school' last January and has been inspected by Ofsted twice since.
But on a visit in early December, inspectors found there was inadequate progress since it went into special measures, and since the last inspection in July.
Staff had been asked to raise attainment, especially in English and maths, accelerate the progress of certain groups of students, rapidly increase the proportion of good or better teaching, reduce persistent absence, improve the leadership and management of teaching and improve the quality of communication with parents.
But a report published on December 27, said overall, students made more progress in maths last year, but the progress they made was still considerably below average.
It added the progress made by students in English fell considerably in 2012. All groups of students made far less progress than expected nationally.
Teachers were not always successful in identifying different ways to ensure that all students find lessons interesting and challenging and are able to make progress.
