I am very pleased to inform you that our Ofsted short inspection report is now live and that the school retains its good judgement.
The Inspector found much to celebrate in our school where “pupils and staff work together happily” namely:
- overall good achievement in core subjects, especially Reading
- more pupils now achieving the higher standard in Reading and Maths
- a wide range of extra curricular activities available
- wide-ranging music provision, this being a particular strength of the school
The priorities the Inspector identified for improvement are those we were already aware of and these form part of the future school improvement and development plan.
I am proud to leave the school in such a positive position for my successor, Mr Phoenix, to take over the helm.
I must extend my personal thanks, along with those of the Governors, to all the Hillside staff for everything they do to make our school a place where “everyone will grow to be the best they can be.”
