Ofsted Inspection Report – May 2022

Dear Parent/Carer

We wanted to share with you the amazing news of our recent Ofsted inspection which took place on 4-5 May 2022. This afternoon we have received a call from Ofsted to inform us that our inspection report will be published within the next 8 days, however they have provided us with advanced notice of this report which you can read below.

Ofsted Inspection Report – May 2022

We are immensely proud of the report. The praise for the school isn’t down to the efforts of everyone over the two days of an inspection, but instead, is deserved recognition for the relentless focus and determination shown by everyone involved in our school’s journey for the past 5 years.

To clarify, as the inspection was a Section 8 inspection, the overall judgement of the school could not change immediately. Instead the report recognised that the school could have been judged outstanding if we had been inspected under a more rigorous section 5 inspection, and therefore Ofsted will carry out a section 5 inspection within 24 months to give us the opportunity to prove that we are truly an outstanding school.

As always, a huge thank you to all of the parents and wider community for your unwavering support. Your trust in us and our constant collaboration has led us to this point.

We hope that you share our delight in the report and see it as another tangible example of something our local community can be proud of.

Yours sincerely

Mr S Huntington and Mr M Jones
Executive Principal and Senior Vice Principal
