Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Students make good progress and this increases as they mature through the school. As a result, achievement is good. Teaching in the majority of lessons is at least good and improving.

Students behave well around the school. Their conduct, manners and punctuality are good. They are courteous to adults, welcoming to visitors and respectful of one another.

Students say they feel safe at school and have a good understanding of how to stay safe. The headteacher, the senior leadership team and the governing body have a clear vision for the direction of the school. Their actions have brought about improvements to standards of teaching ...and students' achievement and they have the ambition to take them to the very highest levels.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not all well planned and teachers do not consistently provide written feedback to students about the next steps in their learning. Some students, including the more vulnerable and those with special educational needs, do not always attend school regularly. Some subject leaders do not always specify weaknesses in marking and assessment when checking other teachers' work.

Information about this school

The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for looked-after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families) is below average. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the Year 7 'catch-up premium' is below average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average.
