School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your effective senior leaders show determination to make the right provision for the varying and diverse needs of the pupils. Together, you have created a culture of high expectations. You readily challenge weaker performance because you rightly believe that pupils deserve the best education. You and other leaders have fully tackled the areas for improvement identified in the previous inspection report. Teachers and teaching assistants now convey high expectations for pupils in their classes. Individual planning reflects that staff know their pupils very well and ensure that lessons meet their specific needs. This ensures that teachers are planning sufficient tasks to meet the needs of all pupils. Feedback given to pupils by staff is regular and useful. Consequently, pupils know what they have done well and what they need to do next. Lessons are typically fun and motivating. They prepare pupils effectively for their next stage of education, employment or training. Pupils are encouraged to have an active role in lessons and they respond very well to this. For example, a lesson seen in the sixth form focused on learners’ interview skills. Learners were happy to share their own areas for development with each other and discuss ways in which they could improve them. The teacher regularly challenged learners to think more deeply about their responses through careful questioning. Learners made good gains in their understanding of interview skills.
