Ofsted carried out an inspection of our school during 14th and 15th November 2017, resulting in an overall judgement of inadaquate. We are disappointed by the judgement however, we accept the issues raised by the inspectors’ findings and, with the support of the local authority, have already started to make improvements where they are needed.
Our report did contain some praise including the high priority given to the care and wellbeing of our pupils and the achievement made by some pupils in their GCSE’s across a wide range of subjects. The inspectors also noticed the good behaviour of our pupils, and their politeness and friendliness.
We are developing a long-term improvement action plan with clear timescales to address the issues that have been identified. Progress is already being made to make sure that improvements happen both effectively and quickly, on those areas where we can do better.
These include increasing leadership across the school and raising attainment, by improving the consistency of both teaching and students’ work.
As a result of the Ofsted judgement the school received a letter from the Regional Schools Commissioner stating that they will act to convert our school into an Academy, once they have identified a suitable sponsor.
