Ofsted (2013) commented 'Students are especially proud of the wide range of clubs and sporting activities that are available after school, and the opportunity that the school provides for students to study at school and after school. Students participate fully in after-school activities, which clearly help them develop interests and experience that they take beyond the school gates. For example, students spoke extremely highly of the school's drama productions in which they have been involved'.
