School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in certain areas. This may indicate that the school is improving towards being outstanding. Therefore, I am recommending that the school’s next inspection be a section 5 inspection. The school is well led and managed and leaders have a clear evaluation of its strengths and areas for development. You have used this shared understanding to improve the quality of education that you provide effectively. Through informed action and whole-staff commitment to doing what is best for the pupils, the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress, behaviour and attendance are all improving. The curriculum has been enriched and the post-16 provision is of the highest quality. Leaders have taken effective action to address the areas of improvement identified at the time of the last inspection. All staff follow the school’s assessment policy and set pupils targets to help them identify clearly what they have learned and how they can improve their work. Pupils often work with staff to set their own targets and track their progress. However, some targets set by staff are not clear enough to help pupils make immediate progress.
