Summary of inspection findings

The school’s current performance is GOOD.

This is because:

  • performance at key stage 4 in qualifications that include English and mathematics has improved over recent years, is above expectations and compares well with that of similar schools;
  • performance at key stage 3 has steadily improved over the last four years and compares well with that of similar schools;
    in many lessons, pupils gain secure knowledge and understanding and develop effective skills;
  • attendance rates are high and are above expectations; and
  • the school works extremely well with its strategic partners and this work has positive impact on pupils’ standards and wellbeing.

The school’s prospects for improvement are GOOD.

This is because:

  • senior leaders have maintained a clear vision of school improvement and have raised pupils’ academic standards and attendance rates at the same time as dealing with the challenges presented by managing a large capital building project, accommodating increasing numbers of pupils and re-locating the school to a new site;
  • at whole school and middle management level, there are systematic processes to evaluate pupil outcomes and provision based on a thorough analysis of data, the views of pupils and parents and carers and reviewing information gathered from lessons observations and the scrutiny of pupils’ work; and
  • governors are well informed about the work of the school, understand performance data well and provide effective support and challenge to the school.
