“The headteacher, ably supported by his senior team, provides good leadership. As a result, there have been significant improvements in the quality of teaching and students’ outcomes since the previous inspection. Leaders make effective use of information on students’ progress to identify strengths and weaknesses. Middle leaders’ clear focus on raising the quality of learning and teaching for different groups of students in their subject areas has led to improved outcomes. Students make good progress in English and mathematics and in most other subject areas. Disadvantaged students currently at the school now make much better progress than in the past.”
