Overall effectiveness Requires improvement

"Too few students, particularly those eligible for the pupil premium, make the expected progress in English and mathematics."; "Teachers sometimes do not use questioning sufficiently well to check students’ understanding or to extend their learning."; "Some teachers do not plan work that matches students’ different abilities."; "The early entry of students for GCSE English language has not helped them to attain the highest grades at GCSE."; "Some students make better than expected progress in English and mathematics."; "The 2013 GCSE results demonstrate a significant improvement in the percentage of students making the expected progress in mathematics."
