The school serves a very diverse community. Around two thirds of the pupils, a proportion much higher than average, has a home language other than English. Approximately a quarter of the pupils are at the early stages of learning English. Nine out of ten pupils come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups; the largest of these groups being other Asian, Asian Indian and Black African. Just over a quarter of pupils, a higher proportion to that found nationally, have special educational needs and/or disabilities the largest group being those with moderate learning difficulties. Almost half of pupils, much higher than the national average, are eligible for free school meals. The proportion of pupils that join the school at times other than the usual starting points is much higher than that found nationally. Since the last inspection the school has gained a number of awards including the Sportsmark and the British Council International Award. During the recent past the school has experienced difficulties in recruiting and retaining staff, but staffing is now stable.
