Ofsted Report

The Academy was inspected for the first time on the 20th February 2024. 

The summary of the result was as follows:

We are proud of our report being ‘Outstanding’ in three of the four categories. Ofsted has special praise for some areas of our Academy, some of which they consider exceptional:

On Behaviour

“Pupils’ behaviour is exceptional. Pupils display excellent self-control and highly positive attitudes to learning. Staff and pupils share highly respectful relationships. This creates an open and encouraging culture where everyone is equally valued.”

“Pupils understand and follow the WBCA values which put ‘decency’ and ‘respect’ at the heart of everything the school does. Relationships between pupils and staff are highly courteous and respectful. Pupils are happy and safe.”

On Curriculum

“The school has carefully developed a highly ambitious, rigorous and innovative curriculum to suit the needs of its pupils. For example, a ‘Literacy for Life’ (LFL) curriculum in Years 7 to 9 effectively helps pupils develop from their primary school education into their secondary school education.”


“The school identifies pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) exceptionally well. ‘Pupil Passports’ provide precise information for staff about pupils’ individual needs. Teachers use this information very effectively to adapt their teaching.”

On Personal Development

“The school places an exceptionally strong emphasis on pupils’ personal development. The school puts itself at the centre of the local community to celebrate and support pupils inside and outside school.”
