This is a larger-than-average school, with about a fifth of its population coming from minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion from families known to be eligible for free school meals is about average. The percentage of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average, with most of these needs relating to moderate learning difficulties. The school's first specialism in modern languages was recently re-designated and the second specialism is in humanities, comprising English, drama and citizenship. When results fell below the government's floor targets in 2009, the school moved into the National Challenge programme, but moved out after better results in 2010. The school has had significant support from the National Challenge advisor, now retained as an independent advisor, from other local schools and from the local authority. After a three-year period with an interim headteacher, the new headteacher took up her post in September 2009. At its previous inspection in 2010 the school was given a notice to improve progress and aspects of teaching and learning. Several recent appointments to the senior team have included a new deputy headteacher, a business manager and an inclusion manager. There has been considerable staff turnover recently and difficult recruitment to some departments has incurred the need for supply teachers, but staffing is now stabilising. At the time of inspection, most Year 11 and Year 13 students were on flexible leave fitting round their examinations. The school works in partnership with Leon School and others for post-16 provision.
