'Pupils’ personal development is at the heart of the school. Everything that leaders do is based on this belief. Together with the staff, they have created a caring culture where pupils thrive. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. Leaders provide a safe and happy environment. Pupils develop extremely positive attitudes to learning, to staff and to each other.' Ofsted Report, June 2018
