This is a good school The headteacher joined the school in 2015. He introduced changes to the curriculum and teaching which are now having a marked impact. Pupils make strong progress in The Douay Martyrs School.

This progress was reflected in pupils' good outcomes in GCSE examinations in 2018. The senior team welcome criticism and advice. The school is improving because of their focus and drive.

Leaders and governors set high standards for their pupils. Pupils respond well. Pupils' behaviour around the school and in class is good.

Teaching is improving because of the training teachers receive. Pupils are keen to learn. Careful tracking by senior lead...ers ensures that most pupils make strong progress.

Leaders provide exceptional support for pupils' and students' personal development and welfare. The pastoral and academic leaders work closely to provide additional help for vulnerable pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. Leaders in the sixth form are extremely ambitious for their students.

The quality of teaching and learning in the sixth form is improving. Sixth-form students are making much better progress than in the past, but this progress needs to be stronger. A few middle leaders are not tracking pupils' progress carefully enough.

A small number of teachers are not matching activities to pupils' abilities. Sometimes teachers do not take advantage of pupils' positive attitudes to their learning.
