Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Leaders and governors have made significant improvements to the quality of education since the previous standard inspection. The school provides a rich and rewarding educational experience for all pupils. Led by an inspirational headteacher who has the highest aspirations for pupils, committed staff are relentless and successful in their drive to improve the life chances for all pupils. Staff have a detailed knowledge of pupils’ needs. They use this information to devise individual programmes of work that enable pupils to develop socially, emotionally and academically. Consistently strong teaching and assessment, carefully tailored to individual needs, enable pupils to make rapid gains in their learning across almost all subjects. Teachers work in close partnership with other professionals from health and social care to provide pupils with an exceptional quality of guidance and support. Skilful teachers quickly re-engage pupils in school and help them to recognise the value of education. Pupils respond well, change their behaviour for the better and benefit immensely from this ‘fresh start’. Pupils’ personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education prepares them extremely well for the future, helping them to make informed healthy lifestyle choices. Students flourish in the sixth-form provision because of outstanding teaching and personal guidance and support. Pupils profit from a wide-ranging, exciting curriculum that is highly effective in supporting the development of a broad range of skills and building their self-esteem. Pupils make good progress in developing their reading comprehension skills, although some are more reluctant to read for pleasure. The school meets fully all of the independent school standards. Compliance with regulatory requirements The school meets the requirements of the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 (‘the independent school standards’) and associated requirements.
