Here a some quotes from their visit:
"Pupils report that behaviour is much better than it once was and that they feel safe"
"Relationships between pupils and adults are positive. Pupils know who to go to when bullying occurs. They say that teachers deal with issues quickly to prevent repeat occurrences. Staff now have a consistent approach to discipline"
"Pupils are proud of the contributions they make in school and to the local community. For example, they enjoy fundraising and undertaking voluntary work"
"During the inspection many pupils wore their cadet uniforms with pride, taking part in programmes to develop their leadership. Sixth form students delight in helping in the younger classes"
"Pupils learn a range of subjects, including a wide vocational offer."
"Leaders ensure that pupils revisit key ideas, so that pupils recall what they learn. Teachers typically have good subject knowledge. Staff have opportunities to learn from the latest educational research"
"Students in the sixth form value their study time and read widely around their subjects"
"Behaviour, including that of pupils with complex behavioural needs, is improving"
"Careers provision is well led. Leaders use the Gatsby benchmarks to check the effectiveness of the schools careers programme. Pupils and sixth form students have access to dedicated careers advisers"
