"I looked at the breadth and depth of the curriculum. I found that physical education (PE) has a high profile in the school, supported well by additional funding for PE and sports. Pupils were keen to tell me that they had a visit from a professional basketball player, who had inspired many of them. 


Many pupils learn musical instruments, including brass instruments and the ukulele. In pupils’ books there is much evidence of subjects other than reading, writing and mathematics being taught regularly." (Ofsted, 2019)

"I found that teachers have good subject knowledge about how to get the best out of pupils with SEND. Education, health and care plans are of good quality...Pupils with SEND follow interventions to help them to catch up with their peers." (Ofsted, 2019)
"Pupils said that the philosophy work they do makes them think deeply about sometimes difficult topics. I was impressed by their depth of thought and the breadth of vocabulary that they used in conversation. For example, they spoke to me about the racist attitudes they sometimes encounter outside the school and how they must ‘rise above it’." (Ofsted, 2019)
