Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher is determined that the school should provide the best possible education for all pupils. He ensures that all of the independent school standards are met. Trustees are skilled and knowledgeable. They have a clear understanding of the key issues to address to maintain a good standard of education. They hold leaders to account and support them effectively. The school’s system for assessing pupils’ progress is highly effective. Teachers make good use of assessment information to plan learning that meets the needs of all pupils. Pupils make good progress in a range of subjects, including English, mathematics and science. By the end of Year 11, standards of progress and attainment in mathematics are very strong. The most able pupils make strong progress across the curriculum. Those pupils who join the school with weaker numeracy and literacy skills receive extra help that has a positive effect on their progress. The school provides a safe environment for pupils. The vast majority of pupils behave well and enjoy their school life. Attendance is good. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school. Leaders and governors are committed to the promotion of British values. As a result, pupils are well prepared to take their place in society as British Muslims. While teaching, learning and assessment are good overall, some pockets of weaker teaching remain where teachers do not have high enough expectations. As a result, the work of some pupils is poorly presented and, on occasion, incomplete. Teachers do not consistently adhere to the school’s feedback policy. As a result, not all pupils commit to improving their work. Compliance with regulatory requirements The school meets the requirements of the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 (‘the independent school standards’) and associated requirements.
