Many pupils have additional complex needs. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The academy currently has pupils from three different local authorities: Bristol; Bath and North East Somerset; and North Somerset. At the time of the inspection the number of children in the early years provision was below five. The school currently provides education for pupils up to the age of 14.
