Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders are passionate about improving all aspects of the school for the benefit of every pupil.

They have successfully driven improvement over the last three years, including boosting the academic performance of pupils. The headteacher provides inspirational leadership and is well respected by the school community. Teaching, learning and assessment are now securely good overall.

Governors and leaders hold staff to account and provide high-quality training so teachers continually hone their skills. All staff have worked effectively to embed an ethos of warmth, care and support. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school and the ...quality of education it provides for their children.

Pupils are rightly proud to belong to their school. They enjoy learning. They are courteous and have a high degree of respect for others.

The sixth form is good. Sixth form programmes provide well for students, resulting in increased numbers with successful applications to top universities. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching in key stage 3 does not challenge the most able pupils consistently well enough.

Support for disadvantaged pupils does not promote rapid progress consistently well. A few middle leaders are not routinely monitoring the impact of their actions to improve pupils' outcomes. Governors do not always receive clear information about strengths, weaknesses and actions taken.

As a result, governors cannot always ask incisive questions.
