OFSTED April 2013
"Students’ progress in the sixth form is good. They leave school with above average grades, all going on to education or training of their choice, many to popular universities."

"Sixth form students in particular remarked upon their teachers’ commitment to them, always making themselves available to re-explain ideas students find difficult, ensuring that they have a good understanding of the work and relevant examination specification requirements."

"Extremely positive sixth form student attitudes as well as effective teaching enable this success."

"Staff are enthusiastic about students achieving academic success in their subjects so they often challenge and motivate them well, maintaining a good pace to learning."

How will post 16 lessons be different?
