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.”
