School Turnaround

In 2009 the headteacher, Mr Russell made an immediate impact on the school issuing promises to the public about better quality staff, education and funding. The school was again inspected in 2010 in which the outcome was very positive with Ofsted saying the school had gone from being in "Special Measures" to 'Good with outstanding features'. The school continues to make progress. from 1 September 2010 the school has been designated as one of the government's specialist language colleges.

Houses

  • In 2009 Luther King house was scrapped.

In 2011 all houses were changed to Olympic themed houses and forms and their form tutors were put into the same houses.
