Ofsted Report

The King’s school was last inspected by Ofsted in April 2014 and achieved an Outstanding judgement. The report includes:

Students make outstanding progress from
their starting points. The proportion of
students attaining five GCSE grades at A* to
C, including English and mathematics, is well
above average.
The quality of teaching over time is
outstanding because teachers have high
expectations and manage their classes very
Teachers know their students exceptionally
well and use this knowledge to plan and
adapt lessons to meet their needs. In a few
cases, feedback in marked books does not tell
students how to improve further.
The GCSE results in many other subjects, for
example science, textiles, geography and
religious studies, are very high when
compared with national averages.
The school takes great care of its students and
as a result they feel extremely safe.
The behaviour of students both around the
school and in classrooms is exemplary.
Positive relationships between staff and
students, based on mutual respect, mean
that learning is able to progress rapidly.
The sixth form is outstanding. The number of
excellent opportunities for students to develop
their leadership skills is particularly striking.
Students are involved in a rich variety of
activities outside of normal lessons and these
make an exceptional contribution to students’
spiritual, moral, social and cultural
development. For example there are strong
international links.
The headteacher is passionate about
developing the school as an inclusive
community; every individual is accepted
regardless of their background. She brings
inspiration and a strong sense of direction to
leaders, managers, staff and students.
The Chair of the Governing Body and the
governing body know the school well and use
their considerable skills to support and
challenge the headteacher and senior leaders
very effectively.
