Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


We are an Outstanding academy!

Teaching is outstanding because staff are highly committed to ensuring that their students fulfil their potential. They have very high expectations of the students and
successfully challenge, nurture and support them at every stage in their studies.
Ofsted, 2013

Following our Ofsted inspection in May 2013, the Academy was found to be Outstanding in all areas. 

When Ofsted inspected the Academy they found:

  • Behaviour is outstanding. Students take immense pride in the academy and everything it offers. The extensive site is clean and tidy and students enjoy and respect their social areas. Movement around the sight is invariably calm and orderly and excellent classroom behaviour helps to foster outstanding learning.
  • Students are offered many opportunities to excel. The expanding and improving range of subjects in the secondary sector meets their needs exceptionally well. A wide variety of clubs, societies, educational visits and charitable efforts, both at home and abroad, help to make the provision for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is exceptionally strong.
  • The effectiveness of the small, but growing sixth form, which has been operating for just over two years, is good. It is improving rapidly because of its outstanding leadership and management.
  • Outstanding leadership and governance, especially from the inspirational principal, ensure that the academy makes rapid progress and meets its challenging targets. At every level, leaders show a remarkable level of
    commitment to ensuring that students flourish and that the quality of teaching and learning continues to improve.
