Overall effectiveness Good

"Students’ achievement is good, so that by the time they leave school in Year 11 they are well prepared for further education or training."; "Teaching is good and sometimes outstanding. Adults in the classroom work well as teams."; "Behaviour in lessons and around school is good. It is well managed, with very good relationships between adults and students. Students value the support they get from the adults, including their key worker and the opportunities they have to make friends with other students at the school."; "Not enough of the teaching is outstanding to ensure students make the best possible progress. Teachers are not yet consistently using the new technologies they have been provided with to accelerate students’ progress."
