Are you a teacher that can inspire highly motivated students?  Can you create an inclusive learning environment which enables all students to exceed expectations?  Can you empower students to succeed?

The team are well led and are keen to make further progress. The diverse curriculum offered at Witton Park supports a high uptake for EBacc subjects.  Outcomes for pupils in 2016 were judged to be good by Ofsted.  We are now likely to be judged outstanding for progress with a progress 8 score of +0.24 in 2016 and a further significant increase in 2017 to 0.45.  Last year saw a dip in progress 8 in line with other schools who have a mixed ability intake.  We are keen to see the figure improve.  The Ofsted report and website will give you a flavour for other aspects of the school.
