Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community



We are a 'Good' school 

There are many excellent statements about the school and we thank you for your continued support on what has been an incredible journey.  As you know, the predecessor school Foundry Primary, was inadequate and in special measures.  Since January 2014, the school has been completely transformed. Whilst there is always room for improvment, we are immensely proud of the work that our staff and students have put into making the academy a fantastic learning environment. 

Key findings from our report include:

  • "Pupils’ outcomes have risen significantly each year since the school opened as an academy. The very large majority of pupils, including the high proportion who are disadvantaged, now achieve outcomes that are at least in line with the national average. However, the most able pupils in school do not consistently achieve the outcomes of which they are capable."
  • "The support for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a particular strength of the school. As a result, provision for pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding."
  • "The inspirational leadership of the principal has been fundamental in establishing a school where pupils thrive, both socially and academically. She has high aspirations for all members of the school community and has embedded a set of values that enable pupils to develop as well-rounded people, well prepared for life in modern Britain."
