Ofsted Report March 2014
Following our Ofsted inspection on 6th & 7th March the final report has now been published. King Edward VI School has been recognised as a 'Good' school with many outstanding features.
I would like to thank the staff, students and governors for their hard work, not just during the inspection but over the last two years. The positive attitudes to learning observed in lessons reflect our enhanced focus on teaching and learning since the last inspection. It is also very rewarding to see the students' positive comments about the wider opportunities at King Edward VI School. The actions identified to move the school towards outstanding reflect our current priorities and we will be working with staff and governors to ensure that these are embedded in daily practice.
