Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Since the arrival of the new headteacher, rapid and transformational change has taken place.

Villiers High school is now an outstanding school where pupils and staff excel in a supportive and caring environment. Leaders set the highest standards for pupils. All groups of pupils make exceptional progress and their behaviour in lessons and around the school is excellent.

The school's programme of personal development and welfare, delivered through assemblies and the personal, social, health and citizenship (PSHC) curriculum, is outstanding. Staff care deeply about their pupils and make every effort to support them in becoming confid...ent young adults. This is particularly the case for new arrivals to the school who initially lack the self-confidence to speak out in lessons.

Teachers constantly strive to improve their practice. The quality of teaching in key stages 3 and 4 is consistently strong. This is because : of the training and encouragement staff receive from leaders and their own colleagues.

Teachers use assessment information very effectively to plan lessons that challenge their pupils. Leadership of the sixth form is outstanding. Students make excellent progress because of the highly effective teaching.

The wide curriculum offer, together with strong support and guidance, ensures that students are very well prepared for university or employment. There is a broad and balanced curriculum which enables pupils to make outstanding progress. However, pupils' uptake of EBacc subjects in key stage 4 is not as high as it might be.
