'Pupils are very motivated to learn because they know what they do well, where they need to improve and strive to achieve their challenging targets'

'Their excellent behaviour is reflected in their excellent attitudes, which enable them to apply themselves to the work they have been given to do'

'Pupils work hard during lessons. Teachers have high expectations and know their pupils well. Behaviour is good, because relationships are positive.'
