“Highdown makes school life as good as it could be”
“The behaviour of students is good. They are polite and courteous to each other and to adults. Students are punctual to their lessons and treat their school with respect.”
“Students have strong relationships with their teachers.”
“Students are well presented and proud to members of the school community”
“Students feel safe and well looked after.”
“Teaching has greatly improved since the previous inspection. It is now at least good across the school and students make good progress in a broad range of subjects.”
“Teachers know their students well and use information about students’ progress to identify where students are underachieving. Additional help or support is then quickly provided to help these students to catch up.”
