Boarding Inspection 2018

The boarding inspection was carried out in March 2018 and boarding at the School was found to be OUTSTANDING! Ofsted found that pupils at this School had a very positive experience in boarding. Here is what they said:

  • The school provides a secure environment in which children and young people flourish, achieve academically, stretch their abilities and develop social skills.
  • Staff have been remarkably successful in improving the life experience of children and young people, and in expanding their future life chances.
  • Despite the large numbers of pupils who board, staff manage to find time to give pupils excellent individual support.

Our boarders agreed with Ofsted and told them:

  • "I would not be where I am now if it were not for this school."
  • "I love… the range of activities. I'm always busy rushing around having an awesome time."
  • "In my last school I couldn’t really be myself; here you feel like you can."
