A few quotes from our latest report (March 2015):

  "This is an outstanding school."

  “High-quality teaching engages, challenges and motivates pupils.
  Information on pupils' achievement is very accurately used to plan
  work for pupils of all abilities" 

 “Expectations are consistently high and pupils are set increasingly  demanding tasks which they relish. A strong culture of mutual respect,  combined with academic excellence, is a feature of all classrooms.”

 “Pupils’ attainment by the end of both key stages is significantly above  average in reading, writing and mathematics. They make outstanding  progress through the school.”

 “Children get off to an excellent start in the Reception class due to the first-  rate provision in the early years.”

 “The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils are extremely polite,  courteous and respectful. They have an unbridled love of learning and a  desire to be successful. They demonstrate this in lessons, where they work  hard to meet challenges, and at break times where they play with great  energy and enthusiasm, at the same time keeping an eye out for others.”
