Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The executive headteacher and head of school, together with other leaders and governors, have created a very popular school where pupils of all abilities and backgrounds flourish. A culture of high aspirations and high expectation pervades the school's work. Pupils' progress across a range of subjects, including English and mathematics, is well above average.

Disadvantaged pupils make similar progress to other pupils nationally. Some aspects of personal, health, social and economic (PHSE) education are developed very well. Careers education and guidance is a major strength.

Assemblies are used well to promote internet safety and i...ssues such as drug awareness, but overall provision for PHSE is not as strong as other aspects of the school's provision. Consistently high-quality teaching results from the school's relentless focus on training and development. Excellent behaviour around the school is demonstrated by pupils' polite and orderly conduct.

Pupils get on together really well, supporting one another's learning in lessons. The school's special focus on the arts, including high-quality music, drama and visual art, helps to promote pupils' excellent cultural development. Pupils' moral and social development is very strong and the school recognises the need to make spiritual development a greater priority.

The new sixth form is rapidly becoming popular and successful. It is judged to be good, because the outstanding aspects of the main school have not yet had time to become well established in the sixth form.
