The school is highly successful in meeting its aim to produce confident, competent and thoughtful individuals who are ready to make the most of their opportunities and contribute positively to the society in which they live. The pupils' achievements are excellent.
"In the senior school, pupils achieve high standards in GCSE and A-level examinations, and most pupils proceed to their first choice university. By the time they leave, pupils are highly articulate and have very good literacy, mathematical and information and communication technology (ICT) skills. Pupils with SEND and EAL achieve well throughout the school because of the support they are given. The range of pupils' achievements in music, drama, sports and other activities is outstanding. The school provides a curriculum which is tailored extremely well to the needs of the pupils and an excellent range of extra-curricular activities for a school of its size.
"Behaviour throughout the school is excellent as are relationships between pupils and staff and among the pupils themselves.
Pupils are enthusiastic, confident and supportive, many showing maturity and sensitivity in their work."
