Ofsted reported in January 2020

This is a school to be proud of.  Leaders expect all their pupils to meet high standards and have a well-rounded education.  They have achieved this.  

Reading is at the heart of the curriculum.   Pupils quickly become fluent readers, reading increasingly complex texts.  Pupils genuinely like to read.  

Vocabulary development is a big focus in all subjects.  Older pupils use sophisticated language.  

The school offers much more than academic subjects.
