This large comprehensive school has its first specialist status subject in sports and as a High Performing Specialist School, gained a second specialism in Applied Learning in 2008. The school has recently been granted permission to develop post-16 provision for sports courses from 2010. The proportion of students from backgrounds other than White British is very low, as is the number with native languages other than English. The local authority acknowledges that local policy differs from most others nationally, so the relatively low proportion of students recorded as having higher levels of learning difficulty and/or disabilities does not reflect the real picture of additional educational needs within the school. Awards held by the school include the Chartermark and the Investors in People award.
