Teaching & Learning

In our 2012 OFSTED inspection Teaching and Learning at the Academy was judged good.

The report highlighted a number of strengths including how the academy promotes students reading, writing and communication skills and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development

It goes on to state, that most students enjoy their learning, make good progress in the majority of lessons and in the best lessons teachers create plenty of opportunities for students to learn independently and use open-ended questioning techniques to extend students thinking

We continue to focus on inprovement to enable all lessons to reach this high standard, encouraging independence and high level thinking while ensuring students develop literacy skills and the important “softer” skills such as team working and leadeship.
