This is a small school in an area of very high social and economic deprivation. Nearly all students, of which there are more boys than girls, live close to the school. The proportion of students entitled to free school meals is well above average. Almost half of the students have learning difficulties and/or disabilities; a high proportion have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. There are few minority ethnic students. All but a few students have English as their first language. There is relatively high mobility within the school population. When the school was last inspected, it was judged to require special measures. Since then, there has been a significant turnover in the teaching staff. The school has found great difficulty recruiting mathematics teachers and there has been no substantive head of mathematics for four terms. The local authority has published plans to close the school at the end of December 2009, when it will merge with another Preston high school. These plans, which are not opposed by the school's governing body, are at an advanced stage of public consultation.
