Description of the school

This is a smaller than average secondary selective boys grammar school in north Birmingham in an area of significant socio-economic deprivation. It is one of seven King Edward VI foundation schools in Birmingham.

Half the students are from Asian backgrounds. About a third of students' first language is not English although none is at an early stage of learning English. There are very few students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

The attainment of students on entry is exceptionally high, and they come from over 65 different primary schools. The school has recently built new laboratories, workshops and art facilities. It has specialist sports college status.
