Church School Inspection

Every five years our school receives an inspection from The National Society.  As a voluntary controlled school, the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools explores three questions:

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?


In addition, the Inspector will consider the effectiveness of Religious Education, but this does not directly inform the inspection.  


Our school was last inspected in March 2017. Please read our inspection report below.
