What the Good Schools Guide says...
System of individual target setting has proved very successful; boys set their own academic goals and 'almost always exceed them'. Lessons we observed were lively, challenging and focused: in a year 7 English class boys were eagerly analysing descriptive techniques in Treasure Island; in the well-equipped DT workshop boys were operating lathes and cutting plastics to fashion note holders, assisted by their enthusiastic female teacher; delicious baking smells drifted from the spotless food technology classrooms - 'The boys have been customising scones', we were told....
What the school says...
'Outstanding' Ofsted Feb 2009.
