Ofsted report June 2013 - Main findings
"Students achieve well, particularly in mathematics. They enjoy their learning and are keen to do well. Rates of progress are improving in English and science.
Most teaching is good, and it is sometimes outstanding. In lessons, teachers generally adapt tasks in line with students’ individual needs and ability levels, and provide a good balance of challenge and support.
Teachers are promoting students’ key literacy and numeracy skills increasingly well across different subjects.
Students’ behaviour is good and often exemplary. They say that they feel safe, bullying is rare and adults support them well. They are polite and thoughtful of others.
The inspirational headteacher is well supported by a strong senior team and highly effective governors. They have been rigorous in their drive to improve the quality of teaching and the impact is now being seen in rising achievement, particularly in English and science. They show an outstanding capacity to improve the school further."
