Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

This is an average sized school situated in an area of relative social and economic advantage, although many pupils travel from further afield. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is below the national average. The number of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds has risen steadily over recent years and is close to the national average, although only a small proportion of these pupils speak English as an additional language. There is Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision for children in the Nursery and Reception classes.
