“The school is a warmly inclusive place. All feel included and valued. Pupils are treated equally and fairly. Pupils who need extra support receive it.” – OFSTED Report, September 2018

“The school is a calm, orderly place where pupils and staff enjoy positive, mutually respectful relationships. This is equally true in lessons and at other free times. Behaviour in an assembly was described by an inspector as ‘impeccable’. Pupils listened carefully, sang well and joined in enthusiastically.” – OFSTED Report, September 2018
