Ofsted report

“Teaching is good. Teachers know their subjects well. Their expertise and enthusiasm motivates students to learn and questions are used effectively to challenge students’ thinking. Students enjoy learning in a harmonious community. Attendance has improved and in Key Stages 3 and 4 is now about average. Students are provided with many varied opportunities to experience life beyond the classroom. They show a good understanding of British values, develop tolerance and respect for cultural diversity and, as a result, are well prepared for modern life in Britain.”
