Teachers model leaders’ high expectations in their work with pupils. Not only is this supporting pupils’ positive attitudes to learning but it has helped to generate clear, well-rehearsed and respected routines that underpin more effective learning.

Pupils’ outcomes at GCSE improved markedly last year and that trend continues. The proportion of pupils gaining at least five GCSEs at grade A* to C, including English and mathematics, was well above average and pupils’ progress is greatly improved.
