Inspection December 3 2014

Overall effectiveness Requires improvement

"Students’ achievement has improved since the last inspection, but progress in some classes, year groups and subjects, including mathematics, is not good enough."; The gap in achievement between different groups of students is too variable. Disadvantaged students are not catching up with their peers at consistent rates."; "Senior leaders and governors hold an over-generous view of students’ behaviour. They have not ensured that teachers have high enough expectations for good behaviour."; "Some students do not take note of the academy’s clear message that using the word ‘gay’ as an insult is not acceptable."; "Senior leaders know which teachers need support to improve and are making sure the training and coaching provided for these teachers are effective."
