Ofsted & Parent View

The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) regulates and inspects to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages.

We are very proud to have been judged as an Outstanding setting in our most recent inspection in October 2019, and strive to remain an Outstanding school.

  • Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning. They are very well prepared for their next steps in both education and life.
  • Pupils are very well cared for and they feel safe in the school.
  • Adults expertly model the school’s values of respect and tolerance.
