School Description

Cambian Dunbroch School is a safe and orderly place. Pupils have had a disrupted experience in their previous education. They enjoy positive relationships with staff. This, along with the calm atmosphere in the school, helps pupils stabilise. Pupils get effective help with their mental health and well-being. Pupils build up their emotional resilience. This helps them be in a better frame of mind for learning. Pupils learn a curriculum that is well planned. However, the quality of its delivery is inconsistent. As a result, pupils do not build up what they know as well as they could. This includes for students in the sixth form. Pupils learn to behave well. They are friendly and polite. Pupils respond to clear expectations. Daily routines, such as breakfast before lessons, help them settle. Over time, pupils’ attendance and conduct improve. They get on well with each other. Any issues get resolved. Pupils enjoy opportunities to develop their learning and interests. For example, they visit the Globe Theatre. Activities, such as cooking for staff in the Friday café and horse riding, broaden pupils’ experiences. They get some help in considering their future options. However, pupils do not get enough opportunities to meet employers and providers.
