Ofsted Report

Please take a look at our latest Ofsted inspection report (2017). We are officially a good and improving school with effective leadership.

Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education) are an independent and impartial body who report directly to Parliament. They inspect services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

School leaders are relentless in developing a culture of high standards, inclusiveness and personal well-being. Consequently, pupils feel well supported and safe. Ofsted 2017
