Challenge Partner Review

As a member of Challenge Partners we receive a Quality Assurance (QA) Review and our trained staff participate in a reciprocal reviews.

The review involves a visit from a team of senior leaders and headteachers from other partner schools, led by an Ofsted-accredited inspector. Their role is to engage in a dialogue with our staff, evaluate the quality of education and identify where improvements could be made.

In September 2015 the findings (which are only allowed to be one grade above your current Ofsted ratings) were:

School Improvement Strategies: Outstanding

Outcomes for Pupils are: Good

Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment: Good

Areas of Excellent Practice:


Achievement of Pupil Premium students


Each area was deemed to have been above where they were at our last full inspection.  We are also an unusual school in so much as we were identified as two areas of excellent practice.
