Behaviour in the sixth form is good. Students benefit from strong teaching and they enjoy their studies. Their attitudes to learning are consistently good.
The majority of pupils behave well in lessons and at other times during the day.
The sixth form is well led. Leaders make regular checks on teaching and students’ progress and use the information they gather to make sure that students consistently make good progress.
The academic and vocational curriculum is well supported by a strong extra-curricular programme. Students take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. They mentor younger pupils, participate in decision-making through the student union and contribute to the local community through the Young Leaders in Service Award programme. The curriculum as a whole contributes effectively to students’ personal development and prepares them well for life when they leave the school.
