Description of the school

The school serves pupils from a range of ethnic backgrounds. Nearly half of the pupils are from Indian backgrounds while a quarter are from White British backgrounds.

Most others are of Pakistani or other Asian backgrounds. Generally, pupils start at the school with knowledge and skills that are broadly as expected for their age, but communication skills in English are rather lower. This reflects the fact that English is an additional language for about half of the pupils, and a quarter of these are at an early stage of acquiring English.
