Ofsted school description
This is a larger than average, oversubscribed school and sixth form college. Most students are of White British heritage and come from districts of varying levels of affluence and deprivation across Brighton and Hove. Standards on entry to Year 7 are, on average, a little above those expected for students of that age. The percentage not having English as their first language is lower than the national average. The school has specialist status in three areas: performing arts, mathematics and computing and, most recently, vocational education.
It is the lead institution in a Leading Edge Partnership. In 2006 the school was awarded the Sportsmark and Artsmark Gold. In 2007 it received the Committed to Careers standard.
