Ofsted Inspection 2023
Ofsted Inspection 2021
Following the 2021 monitoring visit by Ofsted, it was confirmed that the school’s grade of outstanding would be retained. Amongst other aspects, the inspection team reported that:
‘Pupils live up to their teachers’ high expectations and behave well … Pupils are proud of the part they and their school play in the community … The curriculum has a strong foundation in research. Leaders have thought carefully about the knowledge and skills that pupils need to learn and when they need to learn it … Teachers have strong subject knowledge … There are lots of opportunities for pupils to develop their skills and interests … Pupils in the Sixth Form speak with confidence about the high quality of their education and what their teachers do to ensure they succeed … Leaders are passionate about the school’.
Mr Cooper, Headteacher, commented:
‘I am delighted that we have been able to retain our outstanding status, particularly given the changes to the inspection framework recently and the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is testimony to how incredible the students are, how hard-working and committed the staff and Governors are and how supportive and engaged the parents and carers are. I feel tremendously privileged to be at the school and a part of our fantastic community’.
