This inspection was carried out by five additional inspectors. They observed teaching and learning in 34 lessons taught by 33 teachers. They held meetings with students, including members of the school council, pastoral and academic staff, members of the governing body and the School Improvement Partner. They observed the school’s work, and looked at development planning, internal progress monitoring files, safeguarding and child protection documentation and students’ work. Inspectors also analysed 267 questionnaires returned by parents and carers, 45 completed by staff and 163 returned by students.
