Students attending this school exhibit very challenging behaviour and have found it difficult to cope in mainstream settings, often transitioning to the school from other schools in Waltham Forest and surrounding boroughs. Often pupils will have fallen behind their peers academically due to their early schooling and learning being severely disrupted and fragmented.

In line with the school's values of tolerance and respect, pupils learn to own their mistakes and seek to make amends.
