Ofsted visit - October 2021

We were delighted to welcome a team of Ofsted inspectors to the academy on their 19th and 20th October 2021.

The outcome of this visit was that the academy was judged to be GOOD with OUTSTANDING features.

Some highlights from the published Ofsted report were as follows:

  • Pupils achieve well at this popular and thriving school. 
  • Students perform exceptionally well in the sixth form. 
  • Pupils, including children in the early years, benefit from a vibrant learning environment. 
  • The school is inclusive. 
  • Leaders are highly ambitious for pupils and staff. 
  • Pupils are well cared for. They feel safe and attend well. 
  • Pupils report that bullying rarely occurs. 
  • Relationships are positive. 
  • Pupils understand how to conduct themselves respectfully. 
  • Pupils understand leaders’ expectations that learning is ‘disruption free’.
  • As one parent wrote, ‘Five years ago I would not have sent my child here, but now I would not send them anywhere else.’

Parent View

Share your views through Parent View

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

Please register with an email address and a password at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
