Some quotes from the monitoring report July 2018 include:

"Senior leaders, governors and the trust are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection in order for the school to become good.

 

The proportion achieving a grade 4 or 5 (previously grade C) at GCSE in both English and mathematics has increased from that in 2016. Pupils currently in Year 11 are on track to improve achievement across a range of subjects".

"Students in the sixth form are proud of the improvements in the school, particularly relating to the quality of teaching from subject specialists. 

 

 Leaders have increased their drive to improve the quality of teaching across the school. 

 

 Year 7 pupils have made an encouraging start to their studies and are making good progress".

You have taken strong action to improve communication with parents and carers….

 

…the vast majority of parents said that they feel well informed about their child’s progress.

 

Sixth-form students… feel fully supported in the application process for both higher education and employment, through a programme which begins early in Year 12.
