Ofsted report

I am delighted to announce that we have just received the final report from Ofsted this week. This is our first full inspection since November 2019.

It is a report our whole Academy community can be proud of. Inspectors reported a very strong 'Good' judgement overall.

We have been desperate for Ofsted to visit the Academy for a while so that we could demonstrate to them just how good we are and the significant progress we have made since 2019.

The Ofsted team could not have been more impressed! Every child or young person they spoke to or came across was an absolute credit to themselves, to their families and to our academy. They spoke confidently and honestly about the Academy and their learning. The report has recognised and reported on a number of significant strengths including teaching, our curriculum, student behaviour & attitudes and our wider enirchment provision.

Most importantly, the report demonstrates what we already know to be the case, that we have an academy and a group of wonderful staff and students that the community can all be exceptionally proud of.

Thankyou for your continued support.
