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.”

Teaching and learning were judged good at the time of the previous inspection. The school now judges them outstanding and inspectors agree. Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and high expectations of their students. In return, students have high expectations of themselves. Very good working relationships exist between students and teachers and students say they relish the independence teachers give them and appreciate the high levels of encouragement.”
