On the 20th and 21st January 2016, Her Majesty’s Inspectors Mr Charles Lowry and Mrs Janet Peckett visited our school. This visit was the fourth monitoring inspection.

Mr Lowry says: “Having considered all the evidence I am of the opinion that at this time: Leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures”.

Below is the report from our third monitoring visit from HMI. We are pleased to say that we achieved the best possible outcome, which is the judgement: “The school is taking effective action towards the removal of special measures”.

While we are pleased with this outcome, we are under no illusion of the distance we still need to travel. As I have mentioned before, I firmly believe that we can not have a “quick fix” approach. All the changes we have made and continue to make have to be sustainable and have an impact on outcomes.

We will as a school, continue to work tirelessly in ensuring we provide the best possible education for all our young people and to equip them fully for life long learning.
