Ofsted rate our Academy 'Outstanding'


We are very pleased to share the outcome of our November 2023 Ofsted inspection. Having looked carefully at all aspects of our Academy, the inspectors have upheld our previous inspection grade, from 2011, and found that we continue to be Outstanding. 

Last year, fewer than a fifth of schools which had previously been judged Outstanding maintained this grade making our achievement even more impressive. Click HERE to read the full report.

Inspectors were impressed by a number of areas of our Academy particularly the breadth and quality of our curriculum and extracurricular programme, our wellbeing provision and, importantly, our students’ behaviour

We were very proud of the way our students conducted themselves during the visit. As always, they treated each other with respect and kindness and demonstrated their positive attitudes to learning. They were a true credit to themselves, our Academy and their families.

This judgement would not have been possible without our excellent team of staff who work tirelessly to provide our students with the very best learning opportunities. On behalf of our students and their families, we would like to thank every member of our staff for their energy, enthusiasm, kindness and commitment to our Academy community.
