“Students learn extremely well because so much teaching is of a very high quality. They make excellent progress and attain outstanding percentages of A*/A grades at GCSE and A level. Practically all sixth-formers proceed to university.”

“Many parents and carers wrote on their questionnaires how well the school encourages children to grow into confident and independent individuals ‘as well as being inspired to become caring and responsible young citizens’. Students appreciate the highly effective all-round support they receive from staff.”

“Students are enthusiastic and keen to learn and join in all the other activities on offer. Their well-above-average attendance and punctuality reflect their enjoyment of school life. In lessons seen during the inspection, students enjoyed working in groups and presenting their findings to each other. They were attentive, inquisitive and relished solving problems and assessing their own and each other’s work.”

“The large majority of teaching is good with much that is outstanding. Students are often enthused by their teachers’ expert subject knowledge and excited by the stimulating activities and resources teachers use. Teachers’ confidence means that they vary the pace of learning and respond to students’ interests and observations.”
