The school was opened in 1973 and is essentially composed of 3 linked buildings - a 2-level classroom block, a single level Administration/Physical Education/Technical and Music block and a dining and pupil support block to the rear of the school. The school is attractively set in its own grounds, including playing fields. The school has its own Workshop Theatre and a large games hall, as well as the usual academic and practical classroom areas. All areas of the school have undergone a major refurbishment during the year 2001.

The safety and security of all who attend the school is enhanced by a video camera surveillance system and a security entry system which became fully operational during session 2000-2001. Facilities for pupils with physical disabilities are in place. The school was fully refurbished and upgraded during the course of 2002, as part of a City wide PFI project. A Unit for young people on the Autistic Spectrum opened in the school in August 2000.

A self-service cafeteria operates pre-school, at morning intervals and at lunchtimes.
