Ofsted Reports


“Pupils make very rapid progress in academic subjects including English and Mathematics.”

“Pupils are very well behaved. They are polite and show much consideration for adults and their fellow pupils.

“Christianity is woven through all that the school does, the school is successful in supporting pupils’ personal and academic development and in helping them to develop a strong moral compass.”

“The school’s leaders understand well what constitutes outstanding teaching and learning and ensure that it happens almost all of the time. The involvement of parents as volunteers is also impressive.”


The Vine Christian School was awarded Outstanding by Ofsted in March 2014.

At the latest inspection in November 2017 the Inspector felt that there needed to be more measuring and monitoring of staff and student progress, and for that reason awarded ‘Requires Improvement’.  The school leadership team have been through the report, and implemented all the recommendations, including annual tests to benchmark each pupil to their peers in the mainstream sector.

The PRESCHOOL has an Ofsted ‘Good‘ award.
