No schools have specialisms these days. They used to & got extra funding but not for some years. All schools have to follow the same curriculum. Some will still advertise their specialist status but my understanding is that this is out of date (I think Burnham's used to be science).

To be fair, some schools may have acquired some shiny new facilities at the time, pertaining to the specialism, e.g. a snazzy dance studio or engineering workshop, or have retained a higher than average enthusiasm for entering students into national Maths / Science challenges etc. Or still offer optional subjects fitting the old specialism, e.g. a broader range of languages. But the overall curriculum will be the same in the subjects offered.
