Information about this school
This is smaller than the average-sized secondary school.

The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium is in line with national averages.

This is, in this school, additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in local authority care.

The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic groups and who speak English as an additional language are both above the national average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above the national average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also above the national average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards for Year 6, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
