Ofsted Summary

Main Findings

Ofsted LogoThis is an outstanding school.

This is an exceptional school.  It is special in every sense of the word.  The headteacher is uncompromising in her drive for improvement.  Her ambitious plans are fully supported by the dedicated and skilled staff.  She knows the individual needs of pupils very well and goes to extraordinary lengths to make sure that these needs are met.  Staff have high aspirations for themselves and their pupils.  This match of expectations enables pupils to make progress in leaps and bounds.  The quality of teaching is going from strength to strength so that it is always good and a lot of it is outstanding.

Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school and have nothing negative at all to say about it.  Several parents told inspectors the school was ‘amazing’.  The school keeps its pupils very safe because of the well-thought-out and rigorous checked systems that are in place.  Pupils agree they feel safe and that staff are very good at helping them with any problems they may experience.  Staff deal very effectively with any difficult behaviour so that it does not interrupt lessons.  The sixth form is good and gives pupils ample opportunities to prepare for life after school.  Governors are very knowledgeable about the school.  They use this knowledge to make sure that the headteacher and staff are doing the best they can for every pupil.
