What Others Say About Our School


Pupils’ behaviour is good; they are safe and cared for well. Their parents agree. They show positive attitudes to learning that mean that no time is wasted in lessons.

OfstedOfsted Inspector

Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well by the curriculum, which is extended by a programme of cultural and sporting after-school and lunchtime clubs that are much appreciated by pupils.

OfstedOfsted Inspector

All members of the school community, school staff, pupils and governors, are rightly proud of the high standards of behaviour that are the norm in and out of lessons. The school has absolute confidence in its ability to quickly imbue recently enrolled pupils with its ethos; something very necessary given the frequency with which new pupils join.
