In June 2015, the school had its first Ofsted inspection, when the school was adjudged to be "Good".[6] The inspectors noted that the school benefited from several strong senior and middle leaders who were highly committed and were effectively raising standards across the school; other leaders were not as strong and there was no leadership training. Teaching in the primary phase was weaker than in the secondary phase.[6]
