Ofsted report

“All pupils progress to further education, employment or training as a result of exceptional careers advice and guidance. Staff give wholehearted support to pupils to enable their transition to the next stage of their lives. Pupils are taught to respect people from other backgrounds and to treat people fairly. They are actively encouraged to make a positive contribution to society. As a result, they are exceptionally well prepared for life in modern Britain. Staff training programmes encourage staff to be reflective practitioners, always looking to further improve.”
