The school is a purposeful place. Leaders and staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and know pupils well. A good level of support is provided for all pupils and especially for those whose circumstances make them more vulnerable, leading to pupils making good gains in their personal and emotional development.

“Discussion with pupils showed that they are proud of their school and of their school uniform. They value their friendships and the help they get from staff. They reported with great enthusiasm their achievements in a range of sports.” -
