The school opened in September 2003. It forms part of the former Labour government's scheme for schools in deprived areas.
It was formerly called St George Community College, it is now housed in buildings within a £30 million complex. The school also provides adult education to about 1,200 people.
Each student is awarded positive or negative behavioural event logs at the teachers' discretion. These are added to the house point system thereby directly linking house success to classroom behaviour. This system is fully electronic and is dependent on the school's ability to afford sufficient computer access around the school.
The school receives around £12.5 million annually from private charitable donations, approximately three times the annual budget received by state schools of a comparable size.
The school has improved its results year on year and achieved its best ever GCSE scores in 2012, although it consistently scores below the average for Bristol. The table below shows the percentage of students hitting the key measure of 5 A*-C including English and Mathematics.
