Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school School leaders, governors and members of the Bohunt Education Trust (BET) have a clear and uncompromising vision for the school. Leaders are determined to provide the best possible experiences for pupils. Leaders are ambitious for academic excellence and for pupils to become confident, resilient and independent.

The inspirational headteacher has established a highly aspirational culture, which develops the potential of all members of the school community. Staff are fully supportive of his vision and morale is very high. Leadership at all levels is strong and committed to driving further improvement.

Capable and experienced governors carry... out their duties conscientiously and rigorously. They visit regularly and have an accurate understanding of the school. Teachers show secure subject knowledge and most teaching is of a high standard.

There are some inconsistencies where teachers do not provide the right level of challenge and support to pupils.

BET provides highly effective support and extensive quality assurance to ensure high standards in all aspects of the school's work.

Pupils love coming to school. They are completely engaged in their learning and demonstrate excellent behaviour in and out of lessons. They take great pride in their school.

Highly effective relationships between staff and pupils help pupils feel secure and promote their learning and personal development very well.

The vast majority of pupils participate in sporting and other clubs. Pupils enjoy the many opportunities to gain leadership skills. Leaders ensure that pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is extremely well promoted.
