This is a good school.
  • The Principal, senior leaders and governors share a vision, ambition and drive to inspire students. They have considerable capacity to continue to improve through their clear understanding of the college’s strengths and weaknesses.


  • Rigorous checking of lessons by senior leaders, has rapidly improved the quality of teaching throughout the school.


  • From low starting points, students are now attaining standards that are improving and getting closer to that seen in most schools. 


  • Disabled students and those who have special educational needs receive effective, specialist support which enables them to make good progress.
  • Students’ good behaviour and positive attitudes to learning help them to make good progress. They are courteous, polite and welcoming. 


  • Students respond very well to the high expectations of the college. Their attendance has improved and this reflects students’ enjoyment of college.
