SIAMS

In addition to OFSTED inspections, as a Church of England school we have a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection  of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection.  In April 2016 we were judged to be 'Good'.  Key strengths included:

  • the clear leadership and vision of the headteacher which has significantly enhanced the Christian distinctiveness of the academy.
  • the growing links with the local church which have strengthened the spiritual development of the pupils.
  • the high quality of the relationships within the academy which underpin all its work.
