  • This is a good school
  • Leaders and governors have established a culture of high expectations and aspirations for pupils. Their effective actions have resulted in significant improvements in pupils’ attendance and behaviour since the previous inspection.
  • Pupils’ behaviour is good. They are polite, respectful of the opinions of others, and prepared and willing to learn. This helps them to make good progress in a range of subjects.
  • Leaders have ensured that the curriculum provides a broad range of opportunities and reflects the school’s values. It supports pupils’ personal and academic development, preparing them well for life in modern Britain.
  • Pastoral leaders know their pupils well. They provide help so that pupils to grow in confidence and become successful learners.
  • Leaders make good use of external support to improve and review aspects of the school’s work. Teachers are positive about the training and support provided for them.
  • Governors know the strengths and weaknesses of the school well through their regular checks on leaders’ work.
  • The sixth form provides a broad range of opportunities for students. Students make good progress in their courses and almost all move on to their chosen career or education pathway.
  • Middle leaders know how their actions link to whole-school priorities for improvement. There are some inconsistencies in the quality of teaching, learning and assessment where middle leaders do not hold teachers to account as effectively as they could do.
  • The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. However, not all teachers consistently provide the highest levels of challenge, particularly for the most able pupils.
  • Teachers use their specialist subject knowledge to support pupils in deepening their understanding. Those teaching outside their specialism sometimes lack the skills and knowledge needed to do this. This is particularly the case in science.
  • Disadvantaged pupils are now making good progress. However, leaders have not precisely checked the impact made by focused projects on the achievements of this group of pupils. Consequently, opportunities to further improve on successful work have been missed.
