OFSTED confirmed in October 2015 that our quality of teaching & learning, personal development, behaviour & welfare and leadership & management are all GOOD aspects”.
We are completely focused on all pupils making at least expected progress in all subjects but in particular focus on achievement in English and Maths. Many of our pupils actually achieve more than expected and exceed their individual targets.
All our staff are dedicated, committed professionals who regularly go the extra mile to ensure that all pupils give their best and achieve the best they possibly can in all subjects.
“In lessons students enjoy their learning, behaviour is positive and they make good progress. Teachers work hard to form good relationships with students; they understand what barriers to learning the
students might have, and help them to overcome these barriers. Students feel comfortable in their learning environment; they are keen to contribute and learn from mistakes.”
Ofsted Inspection Report – October 2015
- Higher attaining students are stretched by more challenging teaching and an enhanced extra-curricular programme.
- Individual support programmes are developed for pupils with additional needs to break down barriers to learning.
- Enrichments to the curriculum include subject specific visits as well as team building residential trips to a wide range of places including Lockerbie in Scotland, Spain and Holland.
