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 June 2023 we were pleased to receive an overall good rating for care - meaning for 13 years now our care provision has been rated as “good” or “outstanding”.

The children are understood and well cared for by staff, and relationships between staff and the children are positive.

Managers are striving for the best quality of care possible for the children. Managers at all levels know the children well and have a firm grasp of the progress they are making.
