In 2018, our progress scores were the highest of any non-selective school in Stoke-on-Trent and we had the highest grades in English and maths of any secondary school in the north of the city.  

We were visited by Ofsted in November 2017 and they agreed that we were a “good school with outstanding features”.  Our “outstanding” feature was deemed to be “personal development, behaviour and welfare”.  

The growing number of our former students are going on to further study at university.  We have seen a growth of over 400% in our former students who are going on to university study.
