Students are well prepared for next stages in their education and / or employment

“Students’ attainment at the end of their courses prepares them well for the next stages in their education and / or employment.”  (Ofsted – April 2018)

Importantly, “most pupils attain the GCSE grade they should and the most able often make progress that is better than other nationally”. Furthermore, “pupils with an education, health and care plan make good progress”.

“Outcomes for the sixth form students are a strength of the school” (Ofsted – April 2018)

The sixth form is highly regarded locally and, accordingly, it is a popular choice for many local students”. A significant factor in this is that “sixth form students make strong progress on courses, which include a wide range of A level and vocational subjects”.

“Happy, confident and cared for well”

“The pupils who the inspectors spoke to said that they are happy, confident and cared for well”  (Ofsted April 2018)

The inspectors observed that “pupils typically behave well and attend regularly.” It was evident that “staff prioritise pupils’ safety and well being, which in turn creates a culture of vigilance.” “Pupils describe a strong culture of anti-bullying in school and say that bullying is not tolerated.”

 

“Well-rounded, confident and outward looking citizens”

“The school has a clear vision for the development of its pupils as well-rounded, confident and outward looking citizens”  (Ofsted April 2018)

This ensures that “students’ attainment at the end of their courses prepares them well for the next stages in their education and / or employment.” Importantly, “most pupils attain the GCSE grade they should and the most able often make progress that is better than other nationally”. Furthermore, “pupils with an education, health and care plan make good progress”.
