Strong and positive leadership from all levels of management within the school, beginning with the Principal and Senior Leadership Team. A healthy school within a physical environment which is as attractive and stimulating as possible. High and consistent expectation of all students in terms of attainment, achievement and behaviour. A clear and explicit focus on teaching and learning and sharing of good practice amongst staff. Well developed and manageable procedures for assessing students’ work, setting them challenging targets and reporting the information clearly to students and parents. Opportunities for students to take their own share of responsibility for their learning and its assessment and to take part in the running of the school. A positive behaviour policy which is implemented consistently by all staff and includes a system of rewards and incentives to encourage students to succeed. A wide range of study support and extra-curricular activities to broaden students’ interests and experiences.
