Inspection January 31 2013

Overall effectiveness Good

"Leadership, including governance, is good and improving. Shared ambitions ensure that senior leaders and middle managers have high expectations for the school. As a result, student outcomes have improved continuously since the previous inspection."; "Students do well in their GCSE examinations, especially in science, humanities, languages and performing arts. The development of students’ numeracy and literacy skills is particularly strong across the curriculum."; "Progress for all students is not yet outstanding. There has been some variation in how quickly students make progress although the school is working successfully to address relative underperformance by middle attaining students."
