Comments from our most recent Ofsted Inspection in May 2017

“The Executive Principal and Head of School exude 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.”
