We are delighted that at our latest Ofsted inspection in February 2014 both our school and residential facilities were judged ‘Outstanding’ our third successive rating at this level with Ofsted commenting:
‘The school meets fully its key aim of providing the essential skills and knowledge for students to live fulfilled lives. Students’ achievement is outstanding.’
‘By the end of Year 11, students make outstanding progress in relation to their starting points, including in their key skills. They achieve exceptionally well as a result of high quality teaching and the outstanding teamwork of all adults who work with them. This includes very effective contributions from different therapists and other specialist professionals
‘Students’ behaviour in and around the school and at alternative provision sites is excellent. Their attitudes to learning are outstanding because of the extensive range of subjects they can study, interesting lessons and outstanding teaching.’
‘The outcomes for residential students are outstanding in all aspects of care. Residential students have a highly inclusive yet individualised residential experience…there is excellent consistent care and support….The experience of boarding clearly enables students to make excellent progress in their educational, personal, social and cultural development’.
