Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has inspired the school community, raising expectations of teaching and pupils' achievement.

Senior and middle leaders, together with governors and the academy sponsor, share the headteacher's ambition for even greater progress. Governors know the school well. They strive to ensure that it serves the local community effectively.

Since the last inspection, leaders have successfully improved the quality of education on offer. Teaching and pupils' outcomes have improved. Across all key stages, including in the sixth form, pupils make good progress from their starting points.

An above-average proportion of pupils in Y...ear 11 achieve five or more good GCSE grades, including English and mathematics. Teaching, including in the sixth form, is good. Teachers use their good subject knowledge to plan and deliver interesting learning that meets the needs of most pupils.

Positive relationships lead to a calm and purposeful learning environment. Pupils enjoy school and most attend regularly. Their conduct is good and they work hard.

Pupils uphold the school's high expectations of their behaviour. Arrangements to keep pupils safe are effective. Pupils are kept safe and feel safe.

The curriculum prepares pupils well for the next stage of their education. Pupils are aware of the importance of British values. They show tolerance and respect for each other and adults.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Disadvantaged pupils' achievement and attendance, although improving, are lower than those of other pupils in the school and nationally. Leaders' checks on the effectiveness of teaching and support for pupils do not focus clearly enough on groups of pupils, such as disadvantaged pupils, particularly in key stage 4. Too few pupils reach the highest levels of attainment in examinations.

Work set for the most-able pupils sometimes lacks enough challenge to enable them to reach their full potential. The school's assessment policy is not applied as consistently in the sixth form as it is in the main school. Sixth-form students are not always clear about what they need to do to improve their work.
