  • This is an inadequate school
  • The proprietor, leaders and managers have not ensured that the school meets all of the independent school standards and the national minimum standards for boarding schools. This negatively affects pupils’ welfare, health and safety.
  • Safeguarding processes do not meet statutory requirements. Processes for reporting concerns are unclear and staff are not sufficiently trained in some key areas. The school has failed to carry out sufficient checks on staff prior to them commencing employment.
  • A few staff do not implement the school’s assessment policy consistently. Consequently, pupils’ mistakes and misconceptions are not identified quickly enough in a small minority of subjects.
  • Leaders have not addressed pupils’ concerns about the condition of the premises. Pupils say that some classrooms are cold. Some external areas and walkways are poorly lit and slippery.
  • While pupils know how to keep themselves safe online, they are less clear on the risks of radicalisation and extremism. The school has the following strengths
  • Teaching and learning are good. Teachers use information from previous schools to plan lessons that meet pupils’ needs appropriately.
  • Pupils’ behaviour is good because of staff’s high expectations. Pupils arrive on time and are well prepared for lessons. Their positive attitudes contribute to their academic achievements.
  • The personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) curriculum prepares pupils well for their next phases of education or employment.
  • The school has improved pupils’ cultural experiences. Pupils learn about different experiences, customs and lifestyles.
  • Outcomes for pupils are good. The majority of pupils make strong progress from their starting points. The vast majority of pupils achieved their expected GCSE and A-level results. All pupils who left the school last year moved on to higher and further education.
