Description of the school

Bishop Ramsey is a larger than average Church of England secondary school with a big sixth form. Most students come from socially advantaged backgrounds. Few of them are entitled to free school meals. The percentages of students from minority ethnic backgrounds or with English as an additional language are lower than found in most schools. The school has an Artsmark award and is a specialist science college. It is currently situated on a split site, nearly a mile apart, although proposals to move to a single site are at an advanced stage.
