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 school is larger than average. Around two thirds of the pupils are of white British heritage, with the others coming from a cosmopolitan mix of different ethnic backgrounds. Many, but by no means all, pupils join the school having achieved high scores in their infant school assessments in reading, writing and mathematics. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is average. The headteacher was appointed in September 2007 after the school had been through a period of temporary leadership.
