• This is a good school
• The head of school is determined that the school should provide the best possible education for pupils. He sets high expectations for staff and pupils. He is working relentlessly to establish a culture of high aspirations and achievement for all.
• The vice-principal, senior leaders and middle leaders support the head of school’s vision and initiatives effectively. As a result, there is a strong sense of purpose and direction across the school.
• The intake of pupils has grown considerably since the school opened in its current building. The expansion has been managed well.
• Leaders continue to develop the breadth of the curriculum to ensure that it offers a wide range of learning opportunities for pupils. Provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is effective.
• The school provides a safe environment for pupils. The vast majority of pupils behave well and enjoy their school life.
• The school has implemented a comprehensive programme of professional development for staff. As a result, teachers are better equipped to deliver courses that match the new requirements of GCSE qualifications.
• Effective induction programmes for new staff have helped to sustain the overall good quality of teaching at the school.
• The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. This is because teachers have good subject knowledge, and the relationships between teachers and pupils are overwhelmingly positive.
• Teachers plan their lessons with care and, in most cases, ensure that learning activities are engaging. There is clear evidence that the school’s increased focus on developing teaching practice through intensive training is having a positive impact on the quality of the experience that pupils have in lessons. As a result, in most subjects, a high proportion of pupils enjoy the learning activities they have to do and use their lesson time productively.
