“Pupils achieved very well in Year 11 in 2015. The proportion that gained 5 A* to C grades at GCSE including English and mathematics was well above the national level. Learners gain good qualifications in the sixth form. It has established a good reputation and attracts many learners from other schools. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. Their attitudes to learning are good; disruption to learning is uncommon and when it does occur it is dealt with effectively.”
