The Academy celebrated a superb report from a recent HMI inspection. A team of two inspectors reviewed the provision within the academy, observed the quality of learning and teaching and talked to staff, directors and students. The judgement of ‘good progress without any concerns’ places Sirius in the top 10% of schools nationally. This is an excellent indicator and is further confirmation that Sirius enables students to achieve or exceed their potential in a forward thinking environment. The Ofsted inspection and the 2010 GCSE results provide a solid foundation on which to continue to build on our success.
