Information about this school
The school is smaller than the average secondary school. Numbers on roll have been declining for three years but the roll is now beginning to increase.

The majority of pupils are of White British heritage and very few pupils speak English as an additional language.

The school makes limited use of The Bridge Alternative Provision Academy.

There are slightly more boys than girls.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is twice the national average.

The proportion of pupils who are disabled or who have special educational needs is well above average.

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