School Description

Pupils enjoy coming to this school, although a small minority struggle to adhere to the rules or to show enough respect for their peers and staff. Older pupils are very positive about the changes that attending The View has made to their lives. They appreciate the personalised nature of the curriculum and the excellent pastoral support they receive. They feel that their prospects of continuing successfully in education or gaining employment have improved significantly since they joined the school. Pupils who talked formally to the inspector were happy to share their experiences, including when times had been difficult, both at this school or in previous settings. All were immensely positive about the emotional support they get here. Students in the sixth form confirmed that staff expect a lot from them but are sympathetic to their needs. One observed that different staff had ‘their quirks and their perks’, but were always there when things were tough. Parent, pupil and staff surveys were notably positive during this inspection. Although this is a small school, a relatively high percentage of replies were made. Most were incredibly positive about the high aspirations of leaders and the dedication of teaching and support staff.
