They attend regularly and promptly and take great pride in presenting and organising their work carefully.”

“The school helps pupils to become better citizens. Teachers support pupils well, but pupils also support each other.”

“Pupils know that teachers always expect them to work hard. They are grateful for this. Pupils know that they can always learn in lessons.”

“Leaders have brought improvements to many areas of the school since the previous inspection, including behaviour and the curriculum. Parents are very appreciative of the way the school has changed.”

“The school is a calm and orderly environment.” [Ofsted, March 2022]
