The local governing body is responsible for the quality of education at the school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is growing due to the school's admissions policy, which prioritises them, and is now approaching the national average, although is still slightly below. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is much higher than the national average.

Many of these pupils join the school speaking little or no English. There is approximately the same proportion of pupils with SEND as is the case nationally. The school runs an after-school club and a breakfast club for its pupils.
