Ofsted visited us in April 2013 and we hope that you are as proud and as delighted as we are to read what they had to say. You will know that the criteria for ‘Outstanding' schools have been tightened enormously and that to be categorized as a ‘Good’ school means that the school really is very good indeed.
You may notice in the report that schools are judged against stringent criteria under four main headings: Achievement, Quality of Teaching, Behaviour & Safety of pupils, and Leadership & Management. This then leads to an overall grade for ‘Overall Effectiveness’. We scored ‘1’ (Outstanding) for every single category, which is a great testament to everyone associated with the school.
We were visited again in November 2020 as part of Ofsted's research into educational provision for students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The findings of both visits can be found below.
