The school is situated on the north-western edge of Birmingham city centre. It serves an area of high social deprivation with a mobile pupil population. Nearly all pupils are from ethnic minority families, with the highest numbers from Pakistani, Indian, Black Caribbean and Black African heritages. Over half the pupils speak English as an additional language. Pupils enter the school with generally low levels of social, emotional and academic skills, particularly in reading, writing and number. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for free school meals is much higher than the national average. The percentage of pupils on the school's register of special educational needs is also significantly higher than the national figure.
