Excerpts from the Ofsted report:

“Leaders have created a culture and ethos where all members of staff are dedicated to help pupils…….to re-engage in education and improve their life chances. They work tirelessly to make sure that when pupils leave the school they have the required skills to continue to further education, training or employment.”

“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good. The work that this school does transforms young people from being disengaged to becoming successful citizens.”

“Pupils told the inspector that they find that the teachers and teaching assistants work hard to support them."

"They said they learn to trust the adults in the school and so respond in kind by trying to work hard.”

“Pupils, including the most able, make good progress from their starting points. This is because they learn to take their studies seriously and become keen to prepare themselves for the next stages of their careers.”

“Leaders regularly check on the quality of teaching. Teachers value the feedback that they receive as they say it helps them to improve their practice. Leaders, teachers and teaching assistants often discuss together and share ideas of how to adapt their teaching to address the individual needs of pupils.”

“Since the previous inspection, leaders have raised ambitions for broadening pupils’ outcomes by expanding the curriculum offer. Additionally, they have gained accreditation as an official examination centre.”

“The proprietors have created a culture of dedication and vigilance to help pupils modify their behaviours and to ensure their safety and well-being.”
