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

The school serves pupils from a range of ethnic backgrounds. Nearly half of the pupils are from Indian backgrounds while a quarter are from White British backgrounds. Most others are of Pakistani or other Asian backgrounds. Generally, pupils start at the school with knowledge and skills that are broadly as expected for their age, but communication skills in English are rather lower. This reflects the fact that English is an additional language for about half of the pupils, and a quarter of these are at an early stage of acquiring English.
