It continues: “Pupils experience a broad curriculum and high-quality pastoral support. These help them learn and achieve well.

“This is especially true for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). These pupils learn happily alongside their peers.

Inspectors described the school as a “calm and harmonious place” where “pupils behave well and show good manners at all times”.
