Comments from our most recent Ofsted Inspection in May 2017

“Headteacher exudes a determination to enable every pupil to achieve his or her potential.  Governors, leaders, staff, and pupils all share high expectations for pupil’s achievement and their personal development.”

“A ‘learning culture’ is firmly embedded among pupils.  In all subjects, pupils are keen to discuss and debate ideas and approaches.  They are eager to find out more, and determined to improve.  Not a minute is wasted in lessons, and pupils readily continue their enquiries and endeavours out of class.”

Comments from our recent Section 48 inspection in February 2019

This is an outstanding Catholic school because: 

▪ Catholic Life is a core part of every aspect of school life and its curriculum. Its impact on pupils, by the time they leave the school, is profound. 

▪ Religious Education is outstanding. As well as being subject experts, teachers are authentic witnesses to a life of faith and inspire pupils in their learning. At GCSE, the progress of pupils is excellent and sustained. Students achieve well at A Level and value their Core Religious Education programmes. 

▪ Collective Worship at the school is outstanding. Provision is well planned and sufficiently varied, enabling pupils to lead and be led. It engages them and inspires them to take the messages it shares into their daily lives and interactions with others. 

▪ Leaders have dedicated considerable time to reviewing the mission of the school over the last two years. The Catholic Life of the school has developed significantly as a result. There is a clear vision for the future and further key appointments are planned to sustain this improvement.
