Ofsted arrived to carry out a Section 5 inspection on 2nd June 2015 for two days. During that time they examined all documentation, checked current progress and rigorously interviewed Senior Leadership, Governors, Middle Leaders and a large group of students. They also spoke to parents and external consultants. They observed 40 lessons, 90% of which were good or better.

The report will be published on the Ofsted website on 19th June, however a copy is uploaded here as well. We are delighted to say that all categories were Good and student safety Outstanding.
