“This is an outstanding school. It provides an excellent education for its pupils and excellent value for money. This largely matches the school's view of itself. Pupils consistently attain high standards by the end of Year 6. A key feature is the determined leadership of the headteacher who has a very clear sense of direction, correct and imaginative priorities and the energy and will to get things done. The views of the majority of parents are very positive, regarding the school highly and highlighting, asstrengths, the school's effective monitoring of their children's progress and the excellent results. Achievement is outstanding.”

The end of Key Stage 3 national assessments in 2007 reveal students reaching very high attainment levels in English, mathematics and science. Outstanding progress is made throughout the school and GCSE examination results in 2007 show that 100% of students gained at least five A* to C grades including mathematics and English.
