Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. As a result of good teaching, pupils make good progress in relation to their various starting points and capabilities.

The range of subjects and activities offered by the school in Key Stages 3 and 4 is adapted well to meet the needs of pupils, with a strong emphasis on developing language and communication skills. School leaders closely check and assess each aspect of the school's work and ensure that standards of teaching and pupils' performance continue to improve. The management of behaviour is consistently good.

Positive relationships between staff and pupils make a strong contribution to pupils' learning. Pupils report they feel sa...fe and enjoy learning, a view confirmed by parents, carers and staff. The school promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development particularly well.

It is not yet an outstanding school because: The governing body is supportive but governors do not provide a sharp enough challenge to school leaders and do not contribute sufficiently to the strategic direction of the school. The sixth form is expanding and further changes are required to ensure that provision meets the needs of the increasing proportion of sixth form students who have complex needs.
