Ofsted last visited the School in July 2019 and judged its overall effectiveness to be Good.
The Report stated:
‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas. This may indicate that the school has improved significantly overall.’
‘Pupils appreciate the high aspirations which you and your staff model and expect. They really enjoy being at school. They say that the calm, orderly atmosphere in lessons and around the school supports them to learn well and feel safe. Parents and carers who responded to the online survey were positive about all aspects of the school’s work.’
‘staff are aware of the latest safeguarding procedures because they receive regular training. Parents and staff agree that children are safe at your school. Likewise, pupils who spoke to inspectors said that they feel safe and know who to speak to if they have any concerns.’
‘the overall progress measure for Year 11 pupils, which is very strong and has been significantly above the national average since 2016. Likewise, pupils with different prior attainment, including disadvantaged pupils, make strong progress between Years 7 and 11 across nearly all subjects. Additionally, the progress made by post-16 students who sat academic A-level examinations increased from significantly below the national average in 2017 to significantly above average in 2018.’
