SIAMs

A SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.

In July 2019, we were inspected by SIAMs under the latest framework. We are pleased to say that we got the top grades across the board; according to SIAMs, we are an EXCELLENT school.
