The Academy is sponsored by the City of London and has specialisms in business and enterprise, and in sports. It moved into its new buildings in September 2005, following two years in temporary accommodation on two different sites. It is in its sixth year of phased growth and 2008 saw the first cohort of students take GCSE examinations. The academy is careful to recruit students from its immediate locality. Admissions are coordinated by the local authority and students are admitted equally across five ability bands, in order to ensure a broadly comprehensive intake. The student population reflects the academy's immediate inner city catchment; just over half the students are of White British heritage, with a wide variety of other ethnic groups represented, including significant proportions of African and Caribbean heritage. Very few are at the early stages of learning English. A third of students are entitled to free school meals, one quarter have learning difficulties and/or disabilities, and about 5% have a statement of additional need. All these proportions are above or well above national averages.
