OFSTED stated in November 2017
“In all years, the curriculum is broad and balanced. The improved range of subjects offered is ensuring that more pupils can now follow pathways which prepare them for the future.”
“In addition, leaders effectively extend the curriculum by offering a wide offer of clubs and activities after school. The school promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well.”
- 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.
“More-able pupils are making faster progress than in the past and the proportion of pupils reaching the highest grades is increasing.”
