In our Ofsted inspection in May 2018 we were judged to be “Good” in relation to our Leadership & Management, our Sixth Form, and the Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare of our students. Our Outcomes were judged to Require Improvement because the impact of the changes we had put in place had not yet been realised. Our 2018 outcomes are now in line with or significantly above national averages and, as such, would, we believe, be judged to be Good. Our ambition is to build on these achievements in the coming years.
