William Brookes School has been rated a GOOD school by Ofsted, following their full two-day inspection on 17-18 October 2017.
We would like to congratulate and thank our dedicated team of governors, senior leadership and school staff for their hard work and determination. Ofsted have recognised that William Brookes School is a strong, effective and successful school, in which every student can achieve to their full potential.
There is much for us to be proud of in Ofsted’s report and particular highlights include:
"Pupils are typically thoughtful, considerate and well-mannered. Pupils like coming to school and are proud of their community. They are respectful and well cared for by the staff."
"Pupils feel safe in school. All pupils who spoke to inspectors confirmed this. They also said that bullying is rare in school and they trust adults to deal with any that does happen."
"Pupils feel safe and well cared for in school. Safeguarding procedures and systems are strong. All staff know that keeping pupils safe is their top priority."
"The headteacher, senior leaders and governors are relentless in their commitment to improve the school. They are determined to provide the best possible broad education for the school’s pupils. Pupils, staff and parents appreciate their leadership. The great majority of parents who responded to Parent View said that the school is well led and managed and that they would recommend it to another parent."
