At our most recent Ofsted inspection (November 2014), the academy was judged to require improvement overall, but leadership and management were judged to be good, along with the students’ behaviour, safety and the primary provision.
The inspection team noted that the quality of teaching, and students’ achievement, is improving and the development of students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is a strong feature of provision.
‘Students are very proud of their school.’
‘Around the school students treat each other with respect. This leads to a very harmonious community.’
‘Students have a strong sense of what is right and wrong.’
