During Easter 2005 the school was the subject of a serious arson attack.

Overnight the computer infrastructure was totally destroyed and over 70% of the school buildings were either destroyed or not in a fit state to use.

Since then a lot has been achieved:

- A Block has been refurbished and is home to Year 7 students
- A Design Technology suite of rooms has been created in portacabins on the tennis courts
- Science rooms on the ground floor of D Block have been refurbished and returned to use
- Three computer suites have been created in E Block
- The Music Department has been moved to a suite of specialist rooms at the top of E Block
- Temporary classrooms have been set up in E Block car park
- A temporary staffroom has been set up in E Block car park
- A temporary Library has been created in D Block.

- the school is now set to start on a £10 million pound rebuild and refurbishment of the school site.
- building work will start around July 2007 (after exams have finished) and is due to be completed in 2008.
- disruption for students will be kept to a minimum, with the major demolition work scheduled for the summer break.
- all members of the school community have had an input into the design work for the new school.
