Ofsted Inspection Report December 2014

We are very pleased to be able to announce that the inspectors have confirmed that this is a 'Good School', with many positive features. We are also very pleased to see that in the parents' survey, responses were overwhelmingly positive, with 95% of parents stating that they would recommend this school to another parent.

The report identifies some areas where we should look to improve, most notably in the 6th Form, where student achievement could be improved through increased challenge by the teachers. Adding further challenge to all lessons at all key stages is key to ensuring this school can build on its current strengths and ensure the highest quality of education for all students at all levels of ability. Clearly, attendance at school is vital if students are to achieve their full potential, and this is another important aspect that the school will be seeking to improve.

The students were a credit to the school and to their parents during the inspection. The inspectors were very positive about the students, identifying that they show a real desire to learn in lessons and respect the staff's efforts to help them to achieve well. Inspectors also felt that the good relationships between students and staff create a positive environment for learning throughout the school. This latter observation in particular, we feel, truly embodies the ethos at Sir John Nelthorpe School.

We have no intention of becoming complacent, the journey has only just begun!
