The school receives consistently high GCSE results.[not in citation given] Entry is at age 11 for year 7, with selection by Eleven plus verbal reasoning exam; and at age 16 for year 12 (sixth form), with sufficiently high GCSE grades, and dependent on number of places.
The school was awarded Specialist Performing Arts College Status in 2003, and recently achieved Specialist Science College Status. In its 2006 Ofsted inspection the school was graded as "Outstanding".
A multi-million pound sports hall was constructed during the summer of 2005. Many rooms elsewhere in the school have had new ceilings and have been painted. The sports hall is used mainly for physical education lessons as well as whole school assemblies. The sixth form has recently[when?] undergone changes due to a new head of sixth form, including new business wear dress code and replacement of the common room and two study rooms with 'The Studio' (a small café with seating in three separate rooms). In 2010, a new physics block was also completed.
