What is it like to attend this school?

The school expects nothing but excellence from pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils are encouraged to have the highest aspirations for their achievement and for their future careers. They are committed to their studies, showing determination and resilience.

As a result, pupils, including those who are disadvantaged, achieve exceptionally well.

This ambition extends to the new sixth form, where students thrive in the unashamedly academic environment. They are well supported to develop the confidence and experience necessary to secure prestigious destinations for their next steps in education or employment.

P...upils' learning about tolerance and respect is abundantly evident in the positive way that they interact with each other. Staff and pupils develop strong relationships; they warmly greet one another as they move between lessons. Pupils value the ethos of care and compassion that permeates the school.

Many pupils and staff told inspectors that the school feels 'like a family'.

Pupils make excellent use of the clubs and activities that the school provides to support their wider development. This includes many sports clubs and teams, as well as the Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme and the school's own scouts pack.

Pupils also benefit from many trips and visiting speakers that enhance their learning and develop their social skills.

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The school is relentless in its pursuit to provide the highest quality of education. It is well supported in realising this ambition by local governors and the trust.

Rigorous quality assurance systems ensure that those responsible for governance have a clear and accurate understanding of the effectiveness of every aspect of the school's provision.

The school has designed a curriculum that goes beyond the typical, providing pupils with a wide range of learning experiences. The school has carefully considered the local and regional context, particularly in the design of the new sixth-form curriculum.

It ensures that pupils are equipped with the knowledge and qualifications that allow them to progress to suitably aspirational next steps.

The school has embedded a consistent approach to ensure that staff are highly effective in supporting pupils' learning. In each subject, staff know precisely how pupils' knowledge should develop over time.

They design effective learning that helps pupils, including those with SEND, to remember, consolidate and extend their subject knowledge. This is also the case in the sixth form, where staff use their expertise to present complex information in an accessible manner that builds on students' prior learning. This allows students to develop a broad and coherent body of knowledge.

Staff are unrelenting in their approach to identifying and rectifying pupils' misconceptions. Where gaps in knowledge are identified, staff provide effective support that helps pupils to quickly catch up. The school is alert to indications that suggest that a pupil may have SEND, swiftly implementing suitable support for these pupils to overcome any barriers to learning.

As a result, across the curriculum, pupils with SEND achieve highly.

The school places a strong emphasis on the importance of reading for academic success and for enjoyment. Pupils from Years 7 to 13 are supported to make ambitious choices for their independent reading, as well as encountering a vibrant assortment of novels during 'read aloud' time.

The school swiftly identifies pupils that find reading more difficult. Skilled staff help them to rapidly improve their reading comprehension and fluency.

Throughout school, pupils maintain the highest standards of conduct.

Pupil leaders, as well as sixth-form students, are excellent role models for the school community. Pupils have high rates of attendance and punctuality.

Pupils receive a comprehensive package of careers information and advice.

The school liaises with local education providers and employers. This helps to inform pupils about a wide variety of academic and vocational opportunities. The school is tenacious in its approach, ensuring that no pupil leaves without a suitable onward destination.

The programme to support pupils' wider development is extensive and highly effective. The well-structured curriculum is supplemented by an impressive array of activities that grow pupils' leadership skills, as well as enhancing their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. The school is determined that each pupil, irrespective of disadvantage, is exposed to an exceptionally rich diet of experiences that they will remember and benefit from for years to come.

Staff are incredibly proud to work at the school. They appreciate the school's strong support for their career development, as well as the ongoing commitment to reduce extraneous workload and to enhance staff well-being.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
