Overall Effectiveness: Good
'This is an improved and growing multi-site school.'
'Pupils join with mixed experiences of, and attitudes to, education. Adults gain the trust of pupils and make a positive difference to their lives. In turn, pupils come to realise that staff want the best for them. Adults’ dedication and care supports pupils to rebuild their faith in themselves.'
'Leaders have overhauled much of the curriculum. They have focused on the nuts and bolts of equipping pupils with the knowledge to make safe choices, manage their behaviour and experience academic success. This helps pupils to take their studies seriously. As a result, many pupils progress well in their time at the school.'
'The school runs a thorough programme to support pupils’ well-being. Pupils receive high-quality pastoral care.'
'Learning mentors and support staff play an important role in fostering the obvious sense of belonging that many pupils feel. Pupils hold these staff in high esteem.'
'Determined, courageous leadership and governance are bringing about many improvements at the school'
