Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


We are delighted to say that we are an Ofsted 'Good' academy

Pupils behave well during lessons and around the school. They show respect for their environment, each other and adults.
Ofsted, 2016

Following our Ofsted inspection in April 2016, the academy was judged to have improved into a 'Good' school in all areas. 

When Ofsted inspected the Academy they found:

  • Pupils develop self-confidence as learners as they progress through the school. They enjoy their learning. They attend well and fewer than average are persistently absent.
  • Pupils say they feel safe and cared for well. They are confident that staff will help them if they have a problem.
  • Pupils make increasingly good progress from their starting points, and attainment is much stronger than it was at the time of the previous inspection.
  • Good teaching and the carefully planned curriculum enable pupils to acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding they need across a range of subjects. Pupils are well prepared for their next steps in education and training and for life in modern Britain.
