Highlights from the report:

The curriculum is broad and covers all the required areas of learning for independent schools.
[The school] gives them first-hand knowledge of public institutions in England and how they work.
The quality of teaching and learning overall is good, with an example of outstanding practice; this is a significant improvement since the last inspection.
The increased number of qualified teachers and those with relevant experience is contributing to good subject knowledge, which helps improve the quality of the teaching and pupils’ learning. Lessons are well planned with appropriate tasks to broaden pupils’ knowledge and understanding.
By the end of Key Stage 4, GCSE results have improved over the past three years and for 2014 results, the proportion of pupils gaining 5 or more A* to C grades, including English and mathematics.
Pupils are taught Qur’an by specialist teachers and the impact of this on increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the Qu’ran is clear. In an outstanding Qur’an lesson pupils showed growing self-confidence and their willingness to use their own initiative when they were asked to identify the rules of tajweed. Beautiful recitation by the subject teacher was listened to with utmost courtesy and pupils applied excellent understanding, demonstrating excellent progress in the lesson.
Daily activities contribute to pupils’ good spiritual development.
The school encourages pupils to behave well and to act in a responsible manner.
The school works hard to encourage good character.
Pupils have a clear understanding of their own culture and a growing respect for other cultures.
Pupils at the school are well cared for and the pupils report that they are happy at school and feel safe.
The behaviour of pupils is good and teachers create a safe, calm and orderly learning environment.
The school building is Grade II listed and was originally designed as a school and meets the needs of the school’s current curriculum.
