The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The school is ethnically very diverse. The largest groups are from Pakistani, Other White, White British
and Black Caribbean background. There are more boys than girls.
The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is very high. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is below the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through pupil premium funding is above the national
average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or are looked after by the local authority.
A number of pupils in Year 7 are supported through catch-up funding for pupils who did not achieve Level
4 in English or mathematics at the end of primary school.
The school does not make use of any alternative educational provision off the school site. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for
pupils' attainment and progress.
Since the previous inspection, there have been a number of appointments to leadership positions,
including a new headteacher in September 2014 and a new deputy headteacher in January 2016.
