Here are some of the comments inspectors made:

'The academy is a harmonious, diverse and caring community where pupils are known well and feel very safe.'

'Staff at the academy understand the academic and emotional needs of individual pupils. They offer high-quality support and guidance which pupils value highly.'

'Pupils’ behaviour at the academy is good. They support each other’s learning in class, work hard and respect each other.'

'The curriculum, across all key stages, is wide and successfully prepares pupils for life in modern Britain.'

'The wider curriculum opportunities provided by the academy are extensive and pupil participation is very high.'


In January 2012, the Academy had a Section 48 inspection. This aimed to answer the question: “How distinctive and effective is the school as a Church of England school?” The key questions are: 

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the religious education (for VA schools)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

The inspector rated the Academy as outstanding in meeting the needs of all learners and good in the other three areas. Here are some of the positive comments made in the report: 

'Students' awareness of spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues is excellent.'

'Academy staff make timely and well-judged decisions about supporting students.'
