Most recent Ofsted Inspection Report: Jan 2001

Quotes from the Ofsted Report:

This is an effective school. The overall standards reached by pupils are comparable with the national average

[The school] makes very good provision for visually impaired pupils

The pupils are given the opportunity to attend all school outings, including trips abroad, and also attend events specifically for students with a visual impairment, such as the theatre and RNIB holidays

However, although the VI pupils are included academically, they are not yet fully accepted, socially, by their peers.
