Famous former pupils include Olympic gymnast Barry Winch, who represented Great Britain at two Summer Olympics, Sam Ardley who appeared as 50 Pence in the first and second series of M I High and Bradley McIntosh of the group S Club 7.

In 2010-11 students at Greenshaw made most progress in the sixth form compared with all schools in Sutton.[3] It has a specialism in maths, and has also been awarded the Arts Council Silver award, Associate Training School, Investor in People and Healthy School awards.
