      Ofsted and Parent View

      I just want to thank you for your support over the last two days during our Ofsted Inspection; we had an overwhelmingly positive response through Ofsted’s Parent View online survey with 98% of responses stating they agree and strongly agree that “My child is happy at this school” and 97% agree and strongly agree to “…recommend this school to another parent”. The outcome from the inspection remains confidential until the final report is published on the Ofsted website, which should be in the next three weeks or so. As you may well know, an Ofsted inspection is a very rigorous process and I want to thank all members of staff who work at the school for their commitment and hard work, especially over the last two years since our last full inspection – our staff and students “did us very proud!”

      Year 9 Options Evening

      Our Year 9 Options Evening was very well attended last night (Thursday 4 February 2016); the range of presentations and information I hope, will prove very useful to our students and parents to making those important choices to help move on to their next stage of study. I would like to thank Mrs Oates and Mr Parrish for their organisation and input into the evening as well as Mr Foster for his presentations and all members of staff who gave their time, especially having had a second full day of Ofsted inspectors in school.

  • Community

    • Good community links add relevance and interest to students’ work. We have strong business links and work closely with voluntary groups, our local primary schools and other organisations. Our growing partnership with local providers is a real strength.

      We are keen to be ‘community partners’. Students and staff are active members of local focus groups and attend local forums. As the lead secondary school within the Shipley Achieving Success (SAS) partnership we are proactive in our support with young people and their families. Our Extended School provision is wide ranging and offers opportunities to engage in after school and holiday clubs together with a wide range of workshops.

  • Vacancies

    • We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed.  We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.

      Ofsted 2014 said;

      “The behaviour of students is good. In the large majority of lessons they are keen to learn, follow the instructions of their teachers and ask interesting questions to support their learning. These aspects help lessons to flow smoothly and support good learning.”

      “The curriculum offers a good range of academic and vocational courses and there is a focus on the development of reading and literacy skills.”
