The school is about the same size as most secondary schools although numbers fluctuate from year to year. The school serves a mixed area with pockets of economic and social deprivation. Relatively few students are entitled to free school meals. The proportion of students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LDD) has risen in recent years and is now well above the national average although the proportion of students with a statement of educational need is in line with national figures. Some students have social and emotional difficulties. Most students are from White British backgrounds. A very small proportion of students are learning English as an additional language. The school was designated as a specialist school in September 2005, specialising in humanities. There is a small sixth form run in collaboration with two other schools. The number of students in the sixth form increased considerably in 2007. The school has a number of external awards and accreditations including The Healthy School Award. The school was a member of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust most improved club in 2006 and 2007.
