The academy is smaller than the averaged-sized secondary school and most pupils are White British. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for looked
after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, and children from services families, is at the national average level.
The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through
school action is below average. The proportion of students with greater learning needs and those supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average.
The academy meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum levels expected for
pupils' attainment and progress.
Of the five new teachers who joined the academy in September 2014, two are newly qualified. The academy operates a specially resourced provision for pupils with special educational needs that caters
for seven students with identified communication difficulties.
Alternative provision for a Year 10 student is provided by Somerset County Council.
