Description of the school

This is a large over subscribed school where pupil mobility is high. Over half of the pupils use English as an additional language with 39 languages spoken. About one third of the pupils come from ethnic minority backgrounds and a small number of these are refugees or asylum seekers. The proportion of pupils who are entitled to free school meals and those with learning difficulties is above the national average. These include an above average number of pupils with statements for special educational needs. Most pupils with learning difficulties experience speech, language and communication problems. The school has won a number of prestigious awards. Each year group has two parallel classes except for the Nursery, which has one full-time class.
