EFFECTIVE action is being taken at Brimsham Green School in Yate to tackle areas that need improving, according to Ofsted.
The school was assessed as requiring improvement after an inspection last autumn.
But a monitoring visit by the education watchdog has revealed that progress is being made.
Ofsted said more teaching was consistently good and the achievement of students was set to improve again.
It said: “The head teacher, senior leaders, subject leaders and governors are absolutely clear about what the school needs to do to improve. They have set a tight timescale to become a good school as quickly as possible.
“All students are now set challenging targets. Achievement for the current Year 11 is on track to be above national averages for both progress and attainment.
“The achievement of students from disadvantaged backgrounds is improving at a faster pace so that gaps between their achievement and that of other students are narrowing. The achievement of students in English is improving significantly.”
But Ofsted said there were still weaknesses in some subjects being taught and the progress of some students was not so strong.
It said the school needed to take further action to ensure that all the improvements it had made were applied consistently well by all teachers and in all subjects.
