The Sydney Russell School is larger than average and in recent years the number of students on roll has shown a steady increase. The sixth form is relatively small and is part of a consortium with two other schools. Almost all students come from the local neighbourhood, which has a high level of deprivation. The proportion of students entitled to free school meals is more than twice the national average. The percentage of students who have learning difficulties and disabilities is the same as that found in other schools. The number of students from minority ethnic groups is broadly similar to the national average. A significant number of students have a first language other than English. The school shares the facilities of a leisure centre with the local community and benefits from a recently opened suite for information and communication technology (IT) and a drama theatre. It is seeking specialist status as a Media Arts College. The school has had difficulties in recent years in recruiting and retaining staff in some subjects. There is now greater staff stability.
