Description of the school

This is a selective grammar school that takes students from a wide catchment area. Students’ attainment on entry is well above average, reflecting the selective nature of the school, although there is a wider range of attainment than is usually found in grammar schools. A small number of students have learning difficulties and disabilities. Relatively few students are from minority ethnic backgrounds. A small number of male students join the sixth form in Year 12. The school has had specialist status for languages since 1999. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
