The academy has had tremendous impact to date.  Each year we publish an Impact Report which are available to read below.  In 2014 – 15, scholars who entered the academy not secondary ready made 42 months progress in reading.  In 2015 – 16, the academy had one of the lowest Persistent Absence figures nationally.  In 2016 – 17, the academy was graded outstanding in all areas including Sixth Form which has only been open nine months.  We are extremely proud of the hard work of our scholars, staff and families in creating such an exceptional place to learn and work.  You can read the full Ofsted report below.
