The school’s focus on raising standards has brought about exceptional improvement over the last few years. Standards in English have been high with GCSE results being well above average. In mathematics, the strong focus on improvement has meant that these standards have risen significantly and are now above average. Hence attainment is above average and students make good, and often outstanding, progress. The school’s excellent, accurate analysis shows that this momentum is due to continue. Results at A level show that students in the sixth form are well prepared for their next phase of education, including university, or for work.”
