A good education for students including their personal development & academic achievement. Ofsted 2013


Ofsted and Performance

Our most recent short inspection took place on 5th June 2018.

The report is very positive and supports our view with respect to areas for improvement. The inspectors found a great deal to celebrate and were very complementary about the students they met throughout the day, both formal meetings and in lessons.

The full report can be found at the bottom of this page.
