Pupils' attainment is significantly above national averages in English, geography, history and religious education and above the national average in mathematics.

Pupils' expected progress in English and mathematics was above national averages in 2015.
Leaders have taken effective action to narrow the gap between the achievement of pupils who are disadvantaged and other pupils in the school and nationally. Gaps in English are closing more rapidly than in mathematics.
Teaching assistants are well deployed to support the needs of pupils. Teachers and support staff know their pupils well and anticipate their needs so that barriers to learning are removed.
Teachers benefit from regular scheduled professional development opportunities.
Leaders ensure that assessments are rigorously and frequently implemented across the curriculum to establish the depth of pupil's understanding.
You have developed an effective careers education and guidance programme. This results in a high proportion of pupils successfully continuing in education, training or employment after Year 11.
Parents who completed Ofsted's online questionnaire, Parent View, agree that their child is well looked after. Parents hold teachers and leaders of the school in high regard and recognise the efforts made to ensure that their children thrive and achieve.
