"In lessons and around the school at break and at lunchtimes, behaviour is exemplary. Students are rightly proud of their new school building and their uniform and an ethos of mutual respect pervades the school. Students form excellent relationships with their teachers and with each other. They frequently describe the school as ‘one big happy family’ and they are at ease with themselves and with visiting adults." - Ofsted 2014
