Information about this school
The school is a smaller than average-sized secondary school.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is high, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic heritages is well above the national average; the largest groups are from Black African, Indian and Other White backgrounds, the latter being mainly of Roma origin. The proportion speaking English as an additional language is high. A quarter of the school's population arrived in the country within the last two years and are at early stage of learning English.

The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for some students including those in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals, is well above the national average.

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

The school is a specialist sports college and has the International School, and EQualities awards.

Fourteen students follow a variety of full- and part-time off-site alternative courses provided by Leicester Secondary Behaviour Services, Community Giants and Leicester College.

The school has specially resourced provision for students with special educational needs for five students with speech, language and communication difficulties.

The proportion of students arriving or leaving the school at other than the normal time is very high; nearly 100 students have joined the school during this academic year.
