Ofsted education inspection

In May 2022 we were delighted to receive an outstanding rating for education in the school, having achieved outstanding across the board in all five key assessment areas. These include leadership and management, quality of teaching, personal development and behaviour, pupil’s outcomes and sixth form provision.

Pupils here achieve things of which they and their parents and carers could previously only have dreamed.

Through its intensive support, the school gives a voice to its pupils, many of whom have struggled for years to be heard.

Ofsted for care - Children's home inspection

In May 2022 we were pleased to receive an overall good rating for care - meaning for 11 years now our care provision has been rated as “good” or “outstanding”.

Children benefit from warm, nurturing relationships with staff. Staff demonstrate an unswerving commitment, enhancing children’s lives and providing a range of positive, developmental experiences.

Equality and diversity are central to the beliefs and ethos of the service. Each child has a unique identity, and this individuality is both championed and celebrated by the whole team.
