School Description

Leaders aim to provide pupils with the learning and experiences they need to lead independent and fulfilling lives. The school is getting better at making this a reality. Staff focus on pupils’ safety and health in lessons. Teachers tell pupils how important it is to attend school. This helps pupils to understand how school can help them to get good jobs or college places when they leave. Year on year, pupils leave Year 11 with more qualifications. Most pupils move on to college or a job when they leave. The behaviour of pupils is much better now than in the past. There are still some pupils that do not always behave well. Some pupils do not move sensibly in corridors when changing lesson or returning from breaktime. Pupils told inspectors that there is some bullying but that teachers always try to sort this out. Some pupils said that this is not always successful. Systems are in place to keep pupils safe. These work well. Most pupils feel safe and receive the social and emotional support that they need. This helps them to concentrate on their learning. Pupils’ personal development is a priority. For example, leaders make sure that there is a focus on skills that will help pupils get a job. Some changes in personal, social and health education (PSHE) are new. Leaders are aware that there is still more to do but improvements are under way.
