The school is much larger than the average-sized secondary school with a sixth form. The large majority of students are from minority ethnic heritages. The proportion of such students in the school is almost four times higher than average, as is the proportion who speak English as an additional language. At around half the students, the largest group is of Pakistani origin. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is slightly higher than average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The proportion of students supported through the pupil premium, which is additional funding given to schools for certain groups such as students in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals, is much higher than average. The school does not use any alternative provision. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.
