Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the headteacher's appointment two years ago, he has worked tirelessly to improve the standards at the school. He has succeeded in this. Results were below the floor standard in 2014 but they are good, now.

The headteacher has appointed a new senior leadership team. Leaders have a clear understanding of what good teaching and learning look like. They are ensuring that all teaching staff provide opportunities for pupils to achieve well.

Relationships between staff and pupils are good. The Christian ethos permeates the school. Tolerance and respect for differences and diversity are apparent.

Leadership of the sixth form is goo...d. The provision is inclusive. Disadvantaged students are successful.

Students are guided to the right courses and all find appropriate education, training or employment when they leave. School leaders have revised the way that behaviour is managed in the school. Learning takes place without disruption most of the time.

Pupils and staff spoke positively of the difference the new system has made. School leaders have embraced the opportunity to provide a new curriculum that allows pupils to develop skills, knowledge and understanding as they progress through the school. Criteria for assessing learning are very specific and support teachers in providing guidance.

Pupils are confident and articulate. They speak of their school with pride. Governors know the strengths and weaknesses of the school well.

They challenge leaders rigorously about issues and seek clarity on aspects that cause them concern. They are aware of the need to provide equality of choice for students and are determined to maintain this level of inclusion.
