School Performance

CSI - 'Outstanding'


Following our Catholic School's Inspection in April 2023 we are incredibly proud to announce that we have achieved 'OUTSTANDING' in all areas under the new framework. 


"There is a tangible sense of community, and parental engagement is a real strength."


"All members of the school community actively live out the mission statement; this can clearly be seen through exemplary behaviour, respect for all, and active participation in the Catholic life of the school and wider community."


"High-quality feedback to pupils in Religious Education leads to outstanding progress and outcomes."







Following our ungraded Ofsted report in March 2024 we are proud to say that there has been no change to our school's overall judgement of good however the evidence gathered suggests that the inspection grade might be outstanding if a graded inspection were carried out now/ 


"This school has a distinct sense of sense of family and belonging where everyone is kind and respectful to each other."


"Leaders have high expectations that all pupils will be well-prepared socially, emotionally and academically when they leave school."


"Pupils' learning is enriched by opportunities which broaden their outlook."


"The school places a high-priority on all pupils having equality of opportunity to learn the curriculum and access to wider opportunities."


"Pupils develop and maintain exceptionally positive attitudes to learning and aim to fulfil their future ambitions."
