After two years under construction, a new 3-storey building was opened to students in Easter 2005. Previously the school had been split between two sites, 'Mercia' and 'Wessex'. The new building offers an
Integrated Resource, Sixth Form, drama studio and an AstroTurfwith an indoor sports hall. The school was given good grades in a recent Ofstedreport going up from 'good' to 'very good'. The school also complies with the government's healthy eatingplan.
