Ofsted 2018 Documents

Following our recent Ofsted inspection, we have great pleasure in sharing with you a copy of the letter received from the Lead Inspector.  Click here to view it.

We were pleased with the overall judgement of ‘Good’ and with the many positive comments in relation to aspects of the school.  We were particularly pleased with the recognition by inspectors of the good practice and attitude of our students and their willingness to make the most of the many opportunities provided for them.  Additionally, inspectors identified the ‘calm, orderly atmosphere around the school’ and agreed with our school self-evaluation that the school really is a ‘community in which all are known and valued’.

As leaders of the school we fully accept the findings of the inspection which is our fourth successive Ofsted ‘Good’.

There are, as always, recommendations for further improvements and we will ensure that we avoid complacency and embed these improvements to improve further the quality of provision at the school.

A copy of the Ofsted letter is available via the school’s website, either as a direct download or via a link to the Ofsted website.

We would like to thank all the students, parents, staff and governors who contributed to the inspection and to everyone who has contributed to the school’s continued pursuit of excellence over the past years.
