Overall effectiveness Good

"Teaching is almost always good, and sometimes outstanding, because teachers use their good subject knowledge to engage pupils in an exciting curriculum."; " Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding, both in lessons and around the school. Pupils are particularly good at working together, discussing their ideas and collaborating effectively in small groups."; "There is not enough outstanding teaching for pupils to make consistently good progress and achieve above-average levels in all areas."
