Our school takes great pride in its recent Ofsted rating of “Good,” with two areas singled out as “Outstanding”: Leadership and Management, and Personal Development. The “Outstanding” Leadership and Management at our school serves as a guiding beacon, steering the school towards further success and fostering an environment conducive to learning. We know our purpose of “Achievement Through Caring” and through high quality Leadership and Management across all levels of the school, we are making great strides forward. The commitment to Personal Development is another standout feature, demonstrating our dedication to nurturing well-rounded individuals who are equipped for the challenges of the future and the real world. Notably, we excel in supporting students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), as our ambition extends to ensuring every student, regardless of their abilities, receives the necessary tools and encouragement to thrive. This commitment to inclusivity underpinned by our vision of ‘achievement though caring’ has resulted in a significant positive impact, evident in the continuous growth and achievement of our students over time. Our school’s journey toward excellence is a testament to our unwavering dedication to providing a holistic and enriching educational experience for all.

We do acknowledge higher exclusion rates and continue to work hard to support all children. Poor behaviour is always challenged and never tolerated. We are seeing exclusion rates starting to fall as a result of our actions to support students when needed.

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to every member of our incredible community, from dedicated staff and enthusiastic students to supportive governors, caring families, and the invaluable contributions of the Marches Academy Trust.

Your support has been the cornerstone of our success, and we are immensely grateful for the special collaborative spirit that defines our school. Together, we have created an environment that fosters learning, growth, and a sense of belonging.
