This school does not give pupils an acceptable education. Too many pupils behave inappropriately in lessons and at other times of the day. Attendance is also poor. A substantial minority of pupils regularly arrive at lessons very late. There has been a very high turnover of teachers recently. Many teachers are inexperienced or new to the school. This poses problems in supporting new staff and ensuring consistency of practice. The quality of teaching varies considerably. Pupils’ views of the school are very mixed. Some are positive, but many are not. Pupils are safe in school despite the poor behaviour of some. Bullying is not common, and it is mostly dealt with appropriately. However, a sizeable minority of pupils and parents do not have confidence in staff to tackle bullying or other problems. Senior leaders are honest, open and show integrity. They understand the school’s weaknesses and are determined to see it improve. They have recently sought help from the local authority. Most senior leaders teach many lessons to cover gaps in the timetable. As a result, they do not have enough time to carry out their leadership responsibilities. At the time of inspection, the school had no effective governance in place.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
