The William Farr Church of England Comprehensive School, situated to the north-east of Lincoln, is much larger than the average secondary school with a large sixth form. It has an almost equal number of boys and girls and almost all students are White British. It is a very popular, over-subscribed school. Students' attainment on entry is above average overall. The number of students eligible for free school meals is low, as is the number with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The number with statements of special educational needs is in line with the national average. Very few students speak English as an additional language. The school changed specialist status in 2007 to become a science college. It is also a Leading Edge Partnership Programme school and a Raising Achievement Partnership Programme school and continues to be designated as a High Performing Specialist School. It has several awards including Careers Mark, Arts Mark, Healthy Schools and Sports Mark. The school has independently run pre-school provision. This was inspected at the same time as the school and a separate report generated.
