STUDENTS and teachers at North Bromsgrove High School have been given a glowing report by education watchdogs.
And, as it comes two years after inspectors gave the school a ‘requiring improvement’ rating, the headteacher and staff have really turned the school’s fortunes around.
Ofsted awarded the school a good rating, praising its progress saying it was putting it students on a launch-pad for future success.
Inspectors added by the time pupils were leaving, they were well-prepared for university, training or work.
Ofsted’s review found the teaching ‘good’ and noted the broad, balanced curriculum which allowed students to progress well while they were also monitored to ensure they did not fall behind.
Inspectors said students felt safe and well-cared for and the good relationships between pupils and staff had helped to create a welcoming calm school.
Headteacher David Hadley-Pryce, said: “I am absolutely delighted by the result.
“The report recognises the hard work of staff, students, governors and parents and celebrates north as a good school, well poised to take the next step.”
