Overall effectiveness Good

"This is a rapidly improving school which increasingly meets the needs of all its students. It is very well led and managed with strong governance."; "There is an impressive range of support, courses and opportunities for students."; "Students now achieve well, gaining GCSE results in line with national averages and, in some subjects, notably English, well above them."; "The school’s strong focus on literacy is helping prepare students for the next stage of their education."; "Teaching is now good, with some outstanding practice. Teachers have good subject knowledge and use an impressive range of strategies to motivate and engage students."; "Teachers’ marking does not always show students how to improve their work."
