“The executive headteacher, ably supported by the head of school, senior team and governing body, is determined to make the school the very best it can be. The school continues to improve at a pace. Currently, from their different starting points, pupils make good progress in most subjects, including English and mathematics. [Extra-curricular activities] are given a high priority, as leaders say that ‘arts, sport and other opportunities help shape pupils as individuals and as citizens of the wider world’.”
