The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. Most students are admitted at
the start of Year 9 having attended middle schools in the towns of Ilminster and Crewkerne. In
the wider area, students transfer to secondary school at the start of Year 7.
The proportion of students who are disabled or have special educational needs and are
supported through school action is below average. The proportion who are supported through
school action plus or who have statements of special educational needs is broadly average. Most
of these students have moderate learning or behavioural difficulties, although some have more profound difficulties such as autism.
The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is below average. The
pupil premium provides additional funding for looked after children and students known to be
eligible for free school meals.
A few students are at an early stage of learning English. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations
for students' attainment and progress.
Some students in Years 10 and 11 study courses at Yeovil College. The school does not use any
other alternative provision.
