Our Academy was judged good by Ofsted in October 2021, and we are now committed to achieving greatness by 2025. The opening line of the report highlights our culture, ‘As pupils enter the school, they are reminded of its inclusive culture by crossing the Rainbow Road. The staff know the pupils very well and have their best interests at heart. Pupils say that they are excited to attend this school and feel safe.’
