The school is one of the longest established schools in Croydon, originally founded over 140 years ago. It has expanded over the years and now caters for about 750 boys and girls, the majority of whom are Catholic but the school is attended by pupils of other faiths. The head teacher is Patrick Shields. It is the 9th most improved school in the country for GCSE exam passes and the percentages are increasing every year.[citation needed]

The Computing and Mathematics Specialism's has enabled the school to develop its computer suites and now has one of the highest pupils to computer ratios.

The school has succeeded in implementing a refurbishment program for the design and technology block to allow a new computer suite for Art, a revised and improved working area for Design and Technology and completely modernised classrooms for RE.[citation needed]
