Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Governors and leaders are relentless in pursuing the very best for the pupils.

The ethos of the school promotes strong, productive relationships between all stakeholders. Leaders at all levels know the school well, use detailed analysis and adopt a self-critical approach to reflection in order to bring about improvement. Governors have ensured that the school has the funding to take on additional buildings and refurbish existing ones in order to give the pupils the best opportunities to succeed.

All pupils achieve exceptionally well from their starting points. The curriculum and extra-curricular activities make a profound differen...ce to the experiences of the pupils. The drive of the headteacher to broaden the provision of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness of life in modern Britain has resulted in the pupils' love of learning.

The structures for tracking pupils' progress are highly refined and allow prompt and effective intervention when individuals fall behind. This helps to ensure that all achieve well. Attendance is above average because of the positive actions of the pastoral team.

Pupils are very safe at this school as a result of robust policies and procedures. There are very high expectations of all pupils, including those who are disadvantaged, the most able disadvantaged and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Consequently, all pupils make rapid progress well above most national rates of progress.

Outstanding teaching is highly attuned to assessing the needs of pupils and advising them on how to make further progress. Teachers who are new to the school are given substantial support to reach the school's high expectations through high-quality professional development. The impact of leaders' actions on less successful areas of the curriculum is demonstrated in the rapid improvements made in pupils' progress in mathematics.

Pupils' oral skills enable them to use discussions to great effect in consolidating their learning. However, their spelling is sometimes inaccurate and is not always corrected by all staff. The pupils are very well prepared for the next steps in education.

All move on to appropriate education, employment or training when they leave the school. The conduct of the pupils is exemplary. They are mature, courteous, polite, warm and open.

They are generous with their time and have raised substantial amounts of money for charity.
