“The Academy is an orderly community where learning is at the heart of students’ time in lessons. Students work engagingly, and are keen to take part in all activities. They arrive to lessons on time, well equipped and ready to begin working; very little time is wasted.” (Ofsted May 2015).
“Teaching is good. Students behave well in lessons and around the school, are very polite to their peers and adults, have positive attitudes to learning and say they feel safe.” (Ofsted Nov 2013).
“Students’ books are marked frequently with detailed and helpful comments that allow them to edit and improve their work. This contributes to students’ good progress.” (Ofsted Nov 2013).
“Students enjoy coming to school and their attendance has improved to be above the national average.” (Ofsted Nov 2013).
“Disabled students and those who have special educational needs make good progress in many subjects, including English and mathematics.” (Ofsted Nov 2013).
“Students’ spiritual, moral and social development is promoted well through assemblies, a variety of tutor-time activities, religious education and art classes.” (Ofsted Nov 2013).
