Description of the school

The school is similar in size to most of its type. More pupils come from ethnic minority backgrounds than found in most schools, but very few of them are at the early stages of learning English. Pupils begin the school with a range of skills that is similar to that found nationally. The school holds the following awards: Basic Skills Quality Mark, Healthy School, Arts Mark Gold, Inclusion Mark and two DfES Achievement Awards.
