The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The proportion of students from minority ethnic heritages is average, as is the proportion who
speak English as an additional language.
The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported
through school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a
statement of special educational needs is also above average.
The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which provides
additional funding for students in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free
school meals, is high.
Twenty-three students in Key Stage 4 follow part-time off-site work-based courses provided by
Nova Training, Timkin Training and Inspireme2be Training. In addition, 14 students across the
school follow short full-time courses at alternative provision run by the local authority: Braybrook
for students in Key Stage 3, Midpoint for those in Key Stage 4, and The Orchard Centre for those
with medical and emotional needs.
The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for
students' attainment and progress by the end of Year 11.
The sixth form is provided in partnership with Our Lady and St Chad's Catholic Sports School. A
small number of students follow courses in other local schools.
A rugby academy to promote excellence in rugby league is provided in the sixth form.
