Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, who is also the proprietor, and the chair of governors work effectively to ensure that all independent school standards are met. Governors provide appropriate support and challenge to senior leaders to ensure that the school continues to improve. The quality of teaching is typically good. Teachers use their strong subject knowledge well to help students make good progress. Students are prepared well for the next stage of their education. Consequently, all students proceed to further education and university. The curriculum meets the needs of students and the expectations of parents. The curriculum enables pupils to achieve well, gain an appreciation of British values and prepares them effectively for life in modern Britain. Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are well promoted. Students are respectful and their personal development and behaviour are good. They have strong attitudes to their learning. Students said that they enjoy their learning and always feel safe. This is reflected in their above-average attendance. Students who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities are supported well and make good progress. On occasions, some students are not provided with more challenging tasks sooner to enable them to make better progress. This, in particular, slows the progress of the most able students. Students have insufficient access to information and communication technology (ICT) to support their learning further. Not all teachers provide written feedback to students in line with the school’s policy. There are too few opportunities for teachers to improve their classroom practice through professional development. This limits the improvements in the quality of teaching. The school improvement plan lacks clarity on the strengths and weaknesses of the school to ensure continuous improvement. Sometimes, leaders do not place enough emphasis on the progress of students when checking the quality of teaching and learning. Compliance with regulatory requirements The school meets the requirements of the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 (‘the independent school standards’) and associated requirements.

The premises were used for tuition during weekends since 2010. The school has never operated for pupils of compulsory school age. The school received its pre-registration inspection in May 2018 when it was judged that the school was likely to meet all the independent school standards when it opens.

Leaders are aware of this and have informed the Department for Education (DfE) accordingly. The school does not have a religious ethos. The school does not provide any off-site provision or use alternative providers.
