School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Above-average attainment has been sustained across the majority of subjects at key stage 4, and rates of progress are good for most pupils. Pupils are proud of their school. The overwhelming majority of those spoken to, including those who responded to the pupil survey, are supportive of their teachers, appreciating the help and guidance they receive. You told me how proud you were of the enriching extra-curricular offer that you feel contributes to a more rounded education, and your pupils appreciate these opportunities. Many speak positively about the range of activities available to them, including fundraising for charity. In particular, they mentioned the triannual ‘stay awake’, sport – specifically badminton – and the arts, where many are looking forward to watching or taking part in this year’s musical production. Since your appointment as headteacher, you and your governors have shown strong leadership in dealing with the challenging financial pressures that you inherited. While this has not detracted from your main responsibilities, you accept that there are still a number of improvements to be made at the school. You have specialist leaders of education based at the school who help lead your school improvement strategy. Their work in other schools offers valuable professional development and brings back good practice seen elsewhere. You are outward facing. As an active member of a local teaching school alliance, you have participated in school-to-school support, both as a giver and a receiver of support.
