‘The school provides valuable care, guidance and support for all pupils regardless of their needs. Effective support systems promote and encourage pupils’ wellbeing, attendance and academic progress.
The provision for pupils with additional learning needs is effective. Worthwhile learning programmes and targeted interventions ensure that these pupils make the expected progress. A notable feature of the school is the manner in which pupils from the Autistic Spectrum Disorder Unit are integrated successfully into mainstream subjects to expand their opportunities and experiences.’
Similarly, more able pupils are supported to excel. A quarter of all pupils at key stage 4 have achieved five or more GCSEs at A*-A for the past three years. The school also has a strong track record of helping post-16 students gain access to Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.
