Following our Ofsted inspection on 10 and 11 May 2017, we have formally been recognised as a ‘Good’ school.
Below are some key findings and quotes in the Ofsted report:
Leaders, staff and governors have created a successful school where pupils are taught well and make good progress.
Parents and pupils are positive about the work of the school. One parent, whose voice represented many, said: ‘We could not be happier with the quality of education and true care provided for the boys.
Teaching is equipping pupils with good knowledge, skills and understanding relative to their age. Pupils are showing good confidence in their abilities across a range of the different subjects they study, including their speaking and pronunciation skills in modern foreign languages.
Pupils’ ability to work effectively with each other is a strong feature of the good behaviour in school. The behaviour of pupils is good.
Pupils are making good progress over time in a wide range of subjects, including modern foreign languages. This is because teachers are effectively developing pupils’ subject-specific knowledge, skills and understanding. Pupils are being prepared successfully for the demands of the courses that they will study at key stage 4.
Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are making at least good progress, particularly in English, mathematics and science. This is a result of strong support from teachers and additional adults, including in developing pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills.
