‘very impressed with the school’s clear sense of purpose in preparing its students for life after school. ’
‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’
