“The headteacher and senior leaders have tackled the significant weaknesses identified at the last inspection well. They have placed the school in a strong position to secure further improvement. The quality of teaching and pupils’ learning and progress in English, mathematics and science are improving quickly. 16 to 19 study programmes are good. Sixth-form learners make good progress in a range of vocational and academic subjects. As a result, they are well prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment. Governors are effective in supporting and challenging the headteacher and senior leaders.”
