In 1994 the school had been placed in special measures and was listed as one of the eight most challenging schools in England. However in 2007 it was reported by The Guardian to be the "most improved school" in the United Kingdom, judged by "league tables" of results. Sir William Atkinson, the school's headmaster, was knighted in the 2008 Queen's Birthday Honours for "services to education and community relations". Phoenix High school has also opened a Sixth Form which is now 2 years old, and is currently offering a range of different subjects.
"Phoenix High School" updated their website in November 2012 to reflect their active efforts to provide community services and to advertise the Phoenix Federation including Canberra Primary School, Phoenix High School, Post 16 (6th Form) and Community. The website, produced by British Websites (Part of Silverback Internet Services Ltd) promotes the areas of the schools that are available to let and features interactive 360 degree views of the school and an RSS feed to keep up to date with the latest news.
