School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. During a time of turbulence, you have maintained a clear vision and provided strong leadership. You, governors and other school leaders are ambitious for the school and have high expectations of the pupils and the staff. The well-being of each pupil is at the heart of the school’s work and you and your staff ‘go the extra mile’ to ensure that pupils are ready to engage in learning. You work closely with governors to identify school priorities and evaluate aspects of the school’s performance. Consequently, governors are further developing their practice in providing support and challenge to leaders. Since the last inspection, you have successfully restructured your leadership team to ensure that leaders at all levels have a clear understanding of pupils’ progress and welfare across the whole school. While you are still going through a period of change, it is evident that this has already been effective and as a result, you and your leaders have an accurate understanding of the school’s strengths and the areas where further improvement is necessary. For example, you have been quick to establish why pupils’ outcomes in mathematics at key stage 4 were below those in English. You have taken rapid action to ensure that pupils across the school are making the progress they should in mathematics and that pupils in Year 11 are on target to reach their expected levels.
