Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leadership and management are good. The headteacher and deputy headteacher, with support of middle leaders and governors, are leading the school very well. The areas for improvement from the previous inspection have been addressed systematically.

As a result, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment has improved and is now good. Pupils' outcomes are good. In most subject areas pupils succeed regardless of their starting point or background.

Consequently, their attainment is well above expectations by the time they leave at the end of Year 8. Good leadership and teaching ensure that pupils from all backgrounds, including the disadv...antaged and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities achieve well. The school's curriculum is well balanced to meet the needs and interests of pupils.

Pupils that enter the school with lower levels of literacy receive strong support that helps them to catch up rapidly. Pupils' behaviour is excellent. They take personal responsibility for their actions.

In lessons, they take part enthusiastically and are respectful and considerate to each other. The school is very calm and supportive. The school's work to keep pupils safe is excellent.

Staff are highly vigilant and ensure that all pupils receive the individual care and support to help them thrive. A strong focus on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development allows pupils to debate issues and have an excellent understanding of life in modern Britain.

Information about this school

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.

This middle deemed secondary school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The school is a foundation school. It is part of the Gosforth Schools' Trust which comprises nine first schools and two middle schools working with local partners in business and higher education.

Most pupils are of White British backgrounds. There are fewer pupils than average that speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs without a statement or education, health and care plan is above average.

Currently, about an eighth of pupils are eligible for support through the pupil premium, which is much lower than average. The pupil premium is additional funding that schools receive to support those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6.
