Consistently effective teaching motivates pupils to achieve exceptionally well, and to become curious and inquisitive learners. Teachers' assessments of progress are accurate. Teachers' relationships with pupils are positive.

Pupils' attitudes in lessons are exemplary. They respect their teachers and value their teachers' excellent subject knowledge. P...upils make rapid and sustained progress across a wide range of subjects during their time in the school.

Disadvantaged pupils, pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities and most-able pupils achieve well. Pupils' behaviour reflects the school's high expectations. They are proud of their school, wear their uniform smartly and enjoy the wide range of responsibilities offered to them.

The school provides pupils with a safe and secure environment in which they flourish. The broad and balanced curriculum is well matched to pupils' needs. Additional activities in the form of clubs and school trips enhance pupils' overall learning experiences very well.

Pupils enjoy coming to school and attend school regularly. Parents rightly hold the school in very high regard. Staff morale is high.

School leaders promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well. Pupils model fundamental British values and are very supportive of one another. Strong governance has contributed towards the school's improvement.
