Dear Parents and Carers
On Monday 23rd January Ms Theresa Phillips, one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors of Schools (the most senior Ofsted inspectors), undertook an Ofsted monitoring inspection.
We have now received a letter with her findings. The letter states that “Senior leaders and governors are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection in order to be a good school.”
It confirms the rapid and sustained improvement made by the school since the last full Ofsted inspection in December 2015. It also refers to our 2016 GCSE results which were the best of any state secondary in Brighton and Hove and saw our students make progress matched only by the most successful 25% of schools in England.
You can view the letter from Ms Theresa Phillips here: Ofsted Monitoring Inspection Letter
As part of the Ofsted process, parents should complete Parent View on an annual basis as it is the Ofsted mechanism for collecting parents’ views on the school. I would ask all parents and carers to take a few minutes to complete that survey if they haven’t done so already this year. You can access the survey here: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/
As always thank you for your support.
Dr James Kilmartin
