The school is smaller than most secondary schools. Most students are of White British heritage. There are small numbers of students from a number of other ethnic groups and a very small proportion of students are refugees or asylum seekers. Twenty three languages are spoken in school, but very few students are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of students identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average and the proportion of students with a statement of special educational needs is broadly average. The proportion of students known to be eligible for a free school meal is twice the national average. The school is a specialist school for sport. A new headteacher was appointed in 2008. An extensive three year refurbishment of the school building was completed in March 2010. The school has received a number of external awards and accreditations including Investors in People, Artsmark Gold and awards from Sport England.
