Description of the school

For entry to this large school, girls are selected on the basis of a local authority ability test. A few boys join the sixth form. Most students are from a White British background but an increasing proportion come from a wide range of minority ethnic heritages. The proportion of students eligible for free school meals is below average. Relatively few have learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school holds specialist status for science and the Investors in People, Healthy School and Quality in Study Support awards.
