We are pleased to report that our Academy was awarded the official rating of GOOD in every aspect of our work. Our students are our best ambassadors and the report clearly shows how well they demonstrated what we stand for to the inspectors. Their very good behaviour shines through the report and reflects the pride they share in the Academy.
The report confirms what we know of our Academy, that it is learning focused, that staff at all levels strive for the best for our students and that we provide a good education that secures the best possible life chances for our children.

Information about inspections
All state-maintained schools in England are regularly inspected by Ofsted. This includes local authority-run schools, academies and free schools.
Ofsted make judgements on FOUR key areas:
- The effectiveness of leadership and management
- The quality of teaching, learning and assessment
- Personal development, behaviour and welfare
- Outcomes for pupils
Schools are then given an overall grade from 1 to 4:
- Grade 1 – outstanding
- Grade 2 – good
- Grade 3 – requires improvement
- Grade 4 – inadequate
If you want to know more about inspection reports, Ofsted have written a useful guide for parents and carers. You can find the latest version at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications
