School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is larger than most secondary schools.

Students come from mainly White British backgrounds. Very few are at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of students supported through school action is broadly average, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with statements of special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school needs and for whom the school receives additional income (pupil premium) is below average.

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