“The drive, passion and determination of the headteacher and his team have made a visible impact on all aspects of the school’s work. Dedicated teachers work extremely hard to ensure that students make good progress, behave well in lessons, and have excellent opportunities to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. Teaching is largely good with some that is outstanding. The sixth form is good. Results are improving sharply. Leaders are showing more ambition and therefore more students are achieving the highest grades.”
