COMMENTS FROM 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.”
Our latest inspection in June 2019 was very disappointing as the Inspector felt that some procedures, and evidence of those procedures were inadequate and so graded the school “Inadequate”. For a copy of the full Inspection reports, please click here.
Over the Summer of 2019 the Trustees and Governors did a deep review of all the areas of concern raised by Ofsted, culminating in a comprehensive Action Plan delivered to the Dept for Education in October 2019. That Action Plan had been fully implemented by the end of December 2019 both in terms of completing the one-time fixes and implementing rigour around on-going changes in areas such as staff training and development, the quality of delivery of student practice sessions etc.
Significant change has been possible because of the Lord’s leading and confirmation throughout our recent efforts. However, after our recent progress monitoring inspection, the inspector felt that, “the school does not meet all of the independent school standards that were checked during the inspection.” To see the full report please click here.
We are confident that whilst we have not met all the independent school standards at this time, we have improved since the June 2019 inspection and believe that with the Lord’s help we are heading in the right direction.
