Description of the school

The school is a smaller than average all girls grammar school. Almost three quarters of its pupils are from minority ethnic groups and the proportion of girls whose first language is believed not to be English is over half. The percentage of pupils with learning needs or disabilities is very low as is the proportion eligible for free school meals. The school has recently acquired music specialist status. The headteacher has been in post since April 2006 and there is a new deputy headteacher since September 2007.
