This is a larger than average sized catholic lower school situated in a multicultural area on the western outskirts of Bedford. A large proportion of pupils are from other Christian denominations or non-Christian faiths. Pupils come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups and half of pupils do not speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, including those with statements of special educational needs, is broadly average. The percentage of pupils who qualify for a free school meal is above average. The school has had some recruitment difficulties. The deputy headteacher was acting headteacher last year, and the current headteacher is seconded from a local school to act in a similar capacity this year. The school has recently been awarded Healthy School status.
