The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. You, leaders and governors have worked hard to raise standards further since that inspection. Pupils’ books demonstrate that the school’s new marking and assessment policy is used consistently. Pupils told me that teachers help them know how well they are doing and how to improve. Most parents agree that their child is taught well. I received an exceptionally large number of responses to Ofsted’s pupil questionnaire. The majority of pupils agreed that in most lessons teachers make sure that everyone understands things, set work that is challenging and help them to do their best. You have recently received a letter from the schools, students and teachers network (SSAT) ‘celebrating your high attainment and progress’. It informed you that you had won two educational outcomes awards for 2016. This gives recognition that your school was in the ‘top 20% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and progress’. The curriculum is broad. Pupils told me that one of the best things about the school is the wide variety of subjects available and opportunities out of lessons, such as trips and productions. You are rightly proud of the quality of students’ work in visual art.

“Special Needs Provision”
05 October 2019AUTHOR: A Parent
While this is in many respects a good school by standard measures, it has serious deficits in Special Needs provision. It is ill equipped to support people with Dyslexia having few resources, but, more significantly, a lack of knowledge and skills across its teaching staff. The management in particular lacks any expertise, and indeed at sixth form level, they seek to direct individuals elsewhere despite being the only school serving this area. Sixth form admission takes no account of Dyslexia and applies identical criteria to all. The concept that equality does not mean treating everyone the same is lost on them. So take great care if your child has Dyslexia, and question far beyond the welcoming statements. Results and University admissions is the driver ; the fact that Dyslexic pupils are entirely capable of achieving both if supported well is not understood. Of course some Dyslexic pupils do succeed here, but generally having had private tutoring. I would in fact award no stars in relation to the Special Needs department, but have tried to be fair in recognising some positive features in other respects.
