Ofsted

“Leaders at all levels have taken effective steps to improve teaching so that teaching is now of a high quality in the majority of subjects across the school. Disadvantaged pupils are making more progress, especially in English and mathematics, and the gaps between these and other pupils are narrowing rapidly. Pupils are well behaved, respectful and well prepared for life in modern Britain.”
