We were delighted to welcome a team of Ofsted inspectors to the school on 30-31 October as part of the Section 5 inspection programme. The inspection team observed a wide variety of lessons, analysed the progess of students and the outcomes of our exam results and indeed spoke to a large number of students about their views of the school. The views of parents and of Governors were also gathered as part of the inspection. Following this process, we are very pleased to report that the school has now been graded "Good" in every category of the new framework . This is testament to the excellent improvements that continue to be seen across all areas of the school as we continue our journey towards Outstanding in the next 2 years. Our students are making good progress across all key stages because of the consistently good teaching that they receive, and the excellent level of pastoral care and guidance that underpins the whole school Christian ethos.
Carol Fearria, Headteacher commented, "I am absolutely thrilled with this well deserved outcome which validated our own judgements and am so grateful to all the staff, students, parents and governors who have worked so hard through strong partnerships to secure this positive result. This is a strong Church school on a clear journey to become Outstanding, and this is a very notable and important stepping stone towards achieving that goal!"
