This is a mixed, non-denominational school, which opened as a new academy in September 2007. It has specialisms of music and mathematics. In September 2008, it moved to its current purpose built accommodation on the site of the former Laburnum Primary School and is located in an area of significant social and economic deprivation. The majority of students live locally and 49% are eligible for free school meals, which is well above the national average. At the moment it has only Year 7, 8 and 9 students, but by 2013 it is expected to have 1,150 students including 250 students in the sixth form. Over half the students come from minority ethnic backgrounds and around two in five have special educational needs and/or disabilities, including 6% who have statements of special educational needs. Both these figures are well above the national average. The academy has previously had trouble in recruiting staff in some subjects, particularly design and technology. An interim principal has led the academy since April 2009. A substantive principal has been appointed to lead the academy from January 2010.
