This is a larger than average school serving an area of mixed housing in Hollingwood. The proportion identified as entitled to free school meals is low, as is the proportion of pupils of other than White British origin. Very few pupils are known to speak a language at home other than English. More pupils than in most schools have learning difficulties and statements of special educational need. Indicators suggest many pupils come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The school has an Investor in People Award, ‘ActiveSports’ Award, a Basic Skills Award and Anti-Bullying Award, and is a Health Promoting School.
