This is combined with positive Ofsted reports where it has been graded a good school with outstanding features. Indeed, Ofsted noted in 2015 that "students behave well. They enjoy lessons and work hard. They feel safe and secure". In a further short inspection in 2018 Ofsted said that the school continues to be good.
To outline more generally the inclusive nature of the school, they operate a wide range of extracurricular activities and performances involving many students who stay behind after school and staff generously help with these. Activities change on a termly basis and involve sports, subject clubs and a variety of other activities. These are backed-up by an extensive range of trips and visits which range from day trips to long haul residential destinations.
The school hugely value staff professional development and have a fantastic NQT support programme. As part of a Teaching School Alliance the school are committed to help train new teachers to the profession.
Teachers have commented that they enjoy working at this school and socialise well. There is a positive staff room and colleagues take part in a wide range of social and sporting activities including free use of the Fitness Suite. There is onsite parking and offer tax-free Child-Care Vouchers together with on-site nursery provision.
In the wake of the 2012 London Olympics games, the school built an Olympic standard running track on their extensive grounds and are one of the few comprehensive schools in the county with such a facility. More recent improvements have seen a £1.6 million refurbishment of their fourteen Science laboratories. The school have an open-door policy and welcome visitors to the school.
