“The pupils really do get such a good deal at our schools as we ensure we maintain the benefits of small schools - such as fantastic adult-to-pupil ratios and bespoke learning support - with the advantages of belonging to a wider community which means we can share best practice and expertise. 

“Both reports rightly highlight how hard all of our staff and pupils work together to ensure the schools continue to flourish and I am so glad that this has been recognised."
