Currently, there are 39 pupils on roll, most of whom have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. This total is made up as follows: two pupils in the primary phase, 23 pupils in the secondary phase and 14 students in the sixth form. There are more boys than girls. Many pupils have had very disrupted previous education, and some have not attended school for significant periods of time.

Around a half of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, with the remainder being White British. Centre Academy was first registered in 1974 as part of the Centre Academy Group, which was based in the United States, but since 2002 it has been in private ownership in the United Kingdom. The group runs a sister school in East Anglia, and the schools share the same governing body. Off-site training is made available for pupils to extend their learning experiences. The school offers the following activities: swimming at Latchmere Leisure Centre, Burns Road, London SW11 5AD; sport and physical education at the Battersea Sports Centre, Hope Street, London SW11 2DA; and work-related courses at Carshalton College, Nightingale Road, Carshalton SM5 2EJ. The school was last inspected in May 2015, when it was judged to require improvement. The headteacher took up her post in September 2017. The school’s aim is ‘to provide excellence in education for students with specific learning difficulties’.
