We were absolutely delighted to have received recognition from Ofsted, who visited us in May 2012 and judged us to be Outstanding. We are the first secondary school to achieve this judgement in the whole of the North East since the new framework was introduced in January 2012. The school was judged to be Outstanding in every single category (Achievement, Teaching, Behaviour and Leadership) and we feel it reflects the fact that our school has improved greatly over the last few years. They told us that "achievement is outstanding because students make excellent progress as they move through the school." They were also very impressed with the teaching, judging 49% of all lessons observed as Outstanding, a figure higher than any we are aware of even in other schools judged to be outstanding. They said that "students benefit from the exceptionally productive climate for learning that pervades the school and excellent teaching that enables them to make rapid progress." Ofsted also said that "behaviour is outstanding. Students respond exceptionally well to the adults who work with them and they trust them." They said that "as a result of all of these efforts students receive a first-class education" and we are truly delighted that the school, our young people, staff and the community we serve has got this recognition. It will allow us to improve even further in the coming years.
