OFSTED Report/DfE Data

  “This is an outstanding school, which values the uniqueness of individuals so that students make excellent gains in their learning. Central to its success is the ethos of teamwork which permeates through the school. Exceptional relationships between students and adults underpin all of its work. This is the result of outstanding leadership and management at all levels in the school, but most importantly to the headteacher and senior managers who have an innovative and dynamic perspective of how the school should serve the needs of students, parents and the local community.

 Students achievement is outstanding. From a low base when students join the school, they make excellent progress.
Student's personal development is excellent. They love being at school so attendance is good. They are really enthusiastic in everything they do. Behaviour in the school is outstanding which is why the atmosphere throughout the school is relaxed , yet productive.
Students progress is directly due to the exceptionally high quality of teaching and learning across the school…..the curriculum is outstanding, but recently the school has made significant improvements to the curriculum to reflect its specialist status.
Even more excitement has been introduced to lessons through drama, music, and the arts which are beginning to have a really positive effect upon students achievement, creativity and appreciation of the world. “
