"Inspection evidence indicates that a change in leadership capacity, along with more robust monitoring and tracking of student progress, better quality teaching and a review of course suitablility, is leading to students making quicker progress in most subjects in Years 12 and 13."
"Observations seen during the inspection show that a higher proportion (of teaching) is now good. As a result, students in the sixth form are beginning to make better progress."
"Teachers' strong subject knowledge and enthusiasm helps to create lessons which students enjoy."
"There are ample opportunities for students to assume leadership roles and to become fully involved in school life. For example, sixth form students support staff in running the Friday evening Youth Club."
"Senior leaders’ monitoring and evaluation of performance is accurate. They know how to improve teaching and learning and have comprehensive plans to raise the quality of teaching and achievement further."
"The headteacher is a visionary leader. He has created strong leadership throughout the school."
"Staff are highly committed to the school and to the vision that has been created by senior leaders and governors."
