Ofsted education inspection

In January 2018 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.

Outstanding leadership enables pupils to make exceptional progress. Staff have an excellent understanding of autism and the needs of individual pupils.

Parents are delighted with the school. They praise how dramatically their children have changed since being at the school. All who responded to Ofsted’s survey would recommend the school to another parent.
