What Ofsted say about our approach (November 2017)

The quality of teaching has improved markedly and the quality of care and contribution to pupils’ well-being is excellent.

Parents are remarkably positive about all aspects of the school and very nearly all would recommend it. The reputation of the school has risen and, as a result, pupil numbers are increasing.

The school’s work to provide care and support to enable pupils to flourish is exemplary.

There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities at the beginning and end of the school day, contributing to the school’s ‘the mind, body and soul experience’.
