The 2007 inspection report describes the school as good with outstanding features. The report notes the wide ranging opportunities which pupils had in lessons and through an excellent array of lunchtime and afterschool clubs. The report also notes that the school had in recent yeard expanded from two form entry to three form entry, however this did not affect the good quality of education provided.
