We are Ofsted GOOD (July 2021)
Following our full Section 5 inspection in July 2021, I am pleased to bring you the main details of the report and share it with you. Please click on the following link to read the full report.
After two days of rigorous inspection, I am delighted to announce that Her Majesty’s Inspectors concluded that the school is ‘Good’ in all areas. These areas are: the quality of education, the effectiveness of leadership and management, personal development, behaviour and welfare, 6th Form study programmes and safeguarding. The inspection process included: in class observations, deep dives in English, Mathematics, History and Geography, meetings with pupils staff, leaders and trustees as well as the consideration of 178 responses to Ofsted’s online survey and a thorough analysis of Parent View (including 136 free text responses) and both pupil and staff questionnaires.
I am incredibly proud of the journey we have taken over the last four years, since I arrived. Our school community has engaged with my vision and their continued support and commitment to become Ofsted Good has been fantastic – thank you. Let’s celebrate this great achievement!
The Forest School community engenders aspirational, safe, prepared, independent, respectful and excellent young men and women who are proud of their school and proud of their achievements.
I encourage you to read the full report. Please visit the Ofsted website to find the full report within the next 8-10 working days.
