The academy opened as an 11–16 school in 2010. A sixth form was created in September 2011. In September 2012, a primary sector was opened making the school an all-through provider for pupils and students aged 3–19. Both the predecessor secondary and primary school had previously been in special measures. The academy is sponsored by the Diocese of Canterbury, Benenden School, Canterbury Christ Church University and Kent County Council. It is larger than the average-sized school. There are similar numbers of boys and girls attending the school in the age range 3–16, but boys outnumber girls in the sixth form. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government to help nationally underperforming groups such as students eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after) is considerably above the national average. Close to 80% of students are of a White British heritage. While the proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is below average, the proportion who speaks English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well above average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well above average. A very small number of Key Stage 4 students receive part of their education off-site through The North School, a neighbouring secondary school, and K College, a local further education provider. In the 2012–13 academic year, the academy’s secondary school met the current government floor standard, which determines the minimum expectations for attainment and progress by the end of Key Stage 4. The floor standard was not met in the primary sector.
