Ofsted report

“The headteacher, with the highly effective support of the governing body and current senior leaders, has instigated and developed the school’s ambitious vision among staff, parents and pupils. Since the previous inspection, there is a sharper focus on developing the quality of teaching and learning. The school’s motto, ‘Fly, grow, connect, strive’ underpin the emphasis on teaching and learning. The school has been transformed.
