Description of the school

Most students come from Roman Catholic parishes over quite a wide area; about one fifth are from local, non-Catholic, families. Nearly half the students are from minority ethnic groups. The school was reorganised to take students aged from 11 to 19 years in 2002, when the local authority closed its middle schools. It shares a joint sixth form with a local Catholic school for boys. The school has specialist business and enterprise status. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
