This is a much larger than average comprehensive school. It has a sixth form which some of the students finishing Year 11, and some from other schools, join. It serves an area that is less disadvantaged than typical and the proportion of students eligible for a free school meal is below the national average. The proportion with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is also below the average. The very large majority of students are of White British heritage. The school has specialist status for business and enterprise. The school has several awards, including Sportsmark, Artsmark (Silver), Investors in People, Kitemark for Enterprise Education and is a Football Association Charter School. Several leaders have been appointed to the school since the previous inspection, including the headteacher and a deputy headteacher.
