The report included comments such as:

  • Astute spiritual and inspirational leadership by the Principal whose vision, motivated by her personal faith, impacts successfully on the multi-faith community the school serves.
  • Exemplary pastoral care and intervention strategies that overcome barriers to learning and enable pupils to realise their potential.
  • Excellent spiritual growth throughout the school ensures positive attitudes, enjoyment in learning and academic success for virtually all pupils.
  • The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners.
