In short, The College’s Progress 8 score in 2016 was -0.14, which is about average (about 40% of schools in England).

The College’s Attainment 8 score was 46.8; lower than the national average of 48.5 but higher than the Local Authority average of 43.6.

58% of pupils achieved a grade C or better in English and maths GCSEs, 1.3% lower than the national average but 6% higher than the Local Authority average.

Since the inspection of the predecessor school in 2013 there have been several changes in the senior leadership team including the principal. The current principal has been in post for two years in an interim capacity and has worked tirelessly to bring stability and consistency to life in the College post conversion to Ormiston Academies Trust. The task is now to secure permanent leadership, cementing the improvements made and building a high performing and sustainable future for the college and local community.

OfSTED last visited the College in March 2016 when there was a “no formal designation monitoring inspection” by two HMI. The inspection was carried out because HMCI was concerned about behaviour at the academy. Having inspected the academy, HMI were of the opinion that leaders and managers had taken effective action to improve behaviour and secure consistently positive attitudes to learning. OfSTED’s next visit to the academy will likely be a full inspection under the latest OfSTED framework. Given the academy converted in September 2014, the first full inspection should take place before the end of the current academic year.
