Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher leads the school with passion and determination. Leaders, including governors, know the community well and are highly ambitious for the pupils in the school.

Their strong leadership has led to good teaching, good behaviour and pupils making good progress. Staff share the leaders' vision and are proud of the improvements they are making in their school. Governors have the knowledge, skills and confidence to provide robust challenge to senior leaders.

They are extremely clear about the strengths of the school and what more needs to be done. Through the trust, the school has developed a most fruitful relationship with a local... high-performing school. This link has been crucial in the effective challenge and support the trust provides.

Teaching is good overall. Leaders are not complacent, however, and they continue to take effective action to improve further the quality of teaching. They accept that there is still some variability.

As a result of strong leadership, safeguarding is effective. Staff receive appropriate training and pupils feel safe. They know who to go to if problems arise, and they have real confidence that staff will help them resolve any issues.

The school's behaviour policy is effective. Behaviour, both in lessons and around the school, is good. Pupils treat each other and adults with respect.

However, leaders have not won over the hearts and minds of a small minority of pupils. In key stage 3 especially, there are some pupils who find it difficult to follow the code of conduct. Leaders acted quickly to respond to a disappointing set of GCSE results in 2018.

The impact of their work to improve the weaker aspects of those results is clear. Current pupils across all year groups are now making better progress than those who left the school in 2018. Leaders are improving the progress of boys, disadvantaged pupils and most-able pupils.

This was seen across both key stages. Leaders review the curriculum regularly to ensure that it meets the needs of the pupils in the community they serve. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is central to that curriculum and pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain.

Information about this school

The school opened as an academy on 1 September 2016 under the sponsorship of Hull Collaborative Academy Trust. As part of the arrangement, the school continued its existing partnership with St Mary's College, Hull, part of the St Cuthbert's Academy Trust. The school's local governing body includes representatives from the trust board and meets regularly to monitor the school's work and hold the headteacher and senior leaders to account.

The school is an average-sized school, but numbers are increasing. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through the pupil premium is above the national average and is in the top 20% of schools nationally. The proportion of pupils who receive support for SEND is above the national average.

The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is just below the national average. The school uses five alternative providers for a total of 25 pupils. These are The Compass Academy, The Rise Academy, The Aspire Academy, The Venn Boulevard Centre and The Sullivan Centre.
