The school has a roll of 1,650, including 300 in the Sixth Form, and is on two sites, Windmill Lane and Imberhorne Lane.

The headteacher is Mr Martin Brown.[3] In 2004, the school was awarded Artsmark Silver and Sportsmark for excellence in these areas.

Many pupils achieve higher than average results and the school ranks within the top 10 in West Sussex. In 2007 GCSE results, 76% students achieved five or more A*–C passes,[4] compared to a national average of 63%. The Sixth Form provides both academic and vocational courses.

Each school year has a head of year, and each site a deputy head.

Facilities[edit]

Imberhorne is split into two sites. The Windmill Lane site, which is the old county grammar school, houses years 7, 8 and 9 (key stage 3) and the Imberhorne Lane site is used by years 10, 11 (key stage 4) and the Sixth form.

Notable alumni[edit]
