From their latest Oftsed report:
“Pupils achieve exceptionally well. Over recent years, the results of national tests reveal a picture of rising standards and pupils who make excellent progress. Pupils, who for a variety of reasons, sometimes find learning difficult, also make exceptional progress. The same applies to those who are learning English as a second language. This is because the school is vigilant at recognising any pupil who might be at risk of falling behind and staff intervene promptly to ensure that progress is maintained.”
