Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school After very weak GCSE and A-level results in 2018, leaders, including the multi-academy trust, took speedy and effective action to reverse the decline. The rapid expansion of the trust had left Deyes High School for too long with too many tasks falling on the shoulders of too few senior leaders.

In September 2018, the board of trustees gave Deyes High School more full-time senior leaders. It also increased its own capacity to monitor standards, which its members had not previously done with sufficient rigour. There have been rapid improvements in the quality of education, especially in relation to schemes of learning and the accuracy of the assessm...ent of pupils' work.

Pupils currently in the school make strong progress in most subjects, including mathematics, science, computer science and humanities. In English and modern foreign languages, pupils' progress is rapidly improving. However, some pupils still underachieve because : teachers have not had time since September to address all the gaps in their learning.

In 2018, the most able pupils, boys and the disadvantaged made less progress than their peers. This year, differences, although still evident, are diminishing considerably. Teaching is effective.

For the most part, teachers use accurate assessments well to match activities with pupils' prior attainment and capabilities. Teachers and leaders ensure that pupils behave well in lessons and at social times. The school is a calm, orderly and purposeful community.

Pupils have very positive attitudes to learning. They enjoy school and are proud to be educated at Deyes High School. The curriculum is broad and flexible.

It allows pupils to pursue academic subjects, as well as to choose from a wide range of more practical and creative options. Overall attendance is broadly in line with national averages. While a small number of disadvantaged pupils frequently miss school, most attend regularly.

The school is a very vigilant community. Strong procedures ensure that pupils are safe from physical and emotional harm. In the sixth form, leaders have addressed the decline in results by introducing curricular changes and improving teaching in those subjects in which students had previously underachieved.

Students benefit from high-quality careers advice and a wide range of enrichment activities.
