For a school that opened in the middle of the pandemic in 2020, inspectors praised us for having high expectations, being inclusive and having "an aspirational curriculum" where "all staff share the vision of pupils "seizing greatness".
The report said, "Leaders provide a high-quality education at this growing school. Pupils understand the school's values of bravery, leadership, aspiration, kindness, and endeavour, and why they matter. They know leaders are ambitious for all pupils. Pupils learn a challenging and engaging curriculum. They value the opportunities to develop their artistic and creative talents in drama, music and art".
Inspectors noted that "This is an inclusive school where diversity is celebrated. Pupils learn about discrimination in relation to the protected characteristics and are taught how to be active citizens who can make a difference. They are taught to be 'leaders, not followers'. Pupils learn about careers options as part of 'Character' lessons, including learning about entrepreneurship. Pupils know that they can succeed when they try hard and are proud of school productions and performances…."
Principal Peter Shaw said: "As a new school, we set high expectations, clear values and have an ambitious curriculum. This is being delivered by talented staff committed to ensuring our students thrive. With challenges from the last few years, our report reflects everyone's hard work."
The inspection occurred on 22 and 23 February, and you can read the full report on the Ofsted website here.
