Ofsted Report

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education.  It is responsible for inspecting and regulating education and training for learners of all ages.

The infant school was last inspected in July 2017 and the junior school in May 2022.  Both of our schools are graded as good.  The latest reports are available to view on the Ofsted website.  To read either of these reports, please click on the links below:
