Overall effectiveness Good

"School leaders and governors have a clear and uncompromising vision for the school that promotes the achievement of every student within a caring community. Leaders have established a highly positive ethos which is helping to drive further improvement."; "Governance is excellent. Governors use their wide-ranging skills to the best advantage of the school. They know where the best teaching resides and provide very effective challenge and support for school leaders."; "Highly-effective support from the Russell Education Trust has helped improve all aspects of the school's work. The school is progressing well towards the founding governors' ambition for an inclusive, high quality school based on Christian principles."; "Teaching is not yet leading to outstanding achievement for all students. The most able students do not make as much progress as they could because they are not always sufficiently challenged."
