Acting headteacher Andy Taylor said he was delighted.
“It’s a proud day for everyone associated with the school and this achievement reflects everybody’s hard work,” he said.
“We are delighted with Ofsted’s findings as they reflect the way we see the school. We will continue with our hard work and strive for even more success.”
The inspectors found there was good and outstanding teaching in all key stages.
