Ofsted Inspection Report

26th - 27th January 2011


This inspection was carried out by two of Her Majesty’s Inspectors and three additional inspectors. Most of the time was spent looking at learning, including observations of 52 lessons taught by 56 teachers. Meetings were held with a range of staff, groups of students and members of the governing body. Inspectors observed the academy’s work and looked at documentation, including information about students’ progress, improvement plans, policies and procedures, teaching records, health and safety information and an analysis of 470 parental questionnaires, together with 125 questionnaires from students in Years 7 to 13 and 68 from staff.

The inspection team reviewed many aspects of the academy’s work. It looked in detail at a number of key areas including the following:

  • How effective is teaching and learning in ensuring students including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who have been identified as gifted and talented, make good progress in lessons and over time?
  • How well are the needs of a small but growing number of students from minority ethnic backgrounds being met?
  • How well does the curriculum meet the needs of all students and in particular those who are less academic?
  • How effectively do leaders at all levels, including the sixth form, ensure greater rigour in monitoring and evaluation to sustain and bring about continuous improvements, for example in mathematics?
