Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Leaders and governors have continued to improve the achievement of all pupils. Pupils move to their next stage of education or training with very strong outcomes across a full range of subjects. The headteacher and her senior team have developed a strong and highly ambitious learning community.

Leaders and staff work relentlessly to secure the school's vision for an inclusive and aspirational school. Leaders ensure that teachers receive the training they need to improve outcomes for all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils. Leaders have designed a curriculum that is broad and balanced.

They review and evaluate their planning ...continuously to ensure that it is aligned with their vision. This means that pupils develop a very real appreciation for a full range of subjects. Governors know their school well and are not complacent.

A recent governance review identified ways to support and challenge leaders even further. Governors are highly ambitious for the school and its learners. Pupils from a range of starting points, including those who are disadvantaged or with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), make excellent progress.

Outcomes are outstanding because pupils benefit from high expectations and the deep subject knowledge of their leaders and teaching staff. Pupils make substantial progress across the curriculum. They have a love for learning and exceptionally positive attitudes to their work.

Pupils are very well mannered and behave impeccably at all times. The culture of safeguarding is strong and effective. Pupils speak confidently, share their views and feel well cared for.

This has helped to shape a welcoming and highly positive learning community. The sixth form is good. Students make clear progress from their starting points.

However, progress is not as strong in the sixth form as it is in other year groups. Leaders have already begun to seek out ways to address this.
