The school was judged to be 'EXCELLENT' because:

  • The school’s Christian vision is carefully and biblically rooted in the Christian message. It is understood, valued and demonstrated by all members of this welcoming and harmonious community.
  • Leadership at all levels is exceptional. It focuses on identifying each individual’s unique potential as a child of God. As a consequence, all are nurtured for emotional resilience, academic success and professional fulfilment. The inspiring headteacher receives excellent support from dedicated governors and talented colleagues.
  • Relationships based on the Christian vision and the core Christian values of love, respect and courage are a tangible strength of the school and recognisable in all interactions.
  • Inclusion is excellent. Adults are creative and caring in the way that they support individuals so that they flourish in a manner that is life changing for some and life enhancing for all.
