The executive headteacher is a national leader in education and was seconded from Mount St Joseph, a
national support school, in January 2015.
The school meets the current floor standards. A joint executive board was appointed in September 2014. The board comprises the chair of governors,
two colleague governors, the assistant director of education (Chair) and two local authority heads of
school improvement. It is working to hand over responsibility to the governing body.
A small proportion of students follow courses away from the school site at Bolton College and Rathbone. Inspectors were aware during this inspection of a serious incident concerning a student that had occurred
since the previous inspection. While Ofsted does not have the power to investigate incidents of this kind,
actions taken by the setting in response to the incident were considered (where appropriate) alongside the other evidence available at the time of the inspection to inform inspectors' judgements.
