Ofsted Report

We experienced our most recent Osted Section 5 inspection in July 2023. We were ever so proud to achieve an Outstanding rating for the Behaviour and Attitudes of our students and secure ‘Good’ school status overall. A firm base on which we can now strengthen to become the best school possible and achieve our vision to be the leading school for educational excellence, where we nurture happy students with strong values, so they all contribute positively to society. 

There is much to celebrate in the report. We are very pleased that inspectors describe us as an ‘inclusive school’ where ‘staff care for pupils makes them feel valued’, and ‘pupils know they are well looked after in this kind and supportive environment’. Other highlights include: 

  • “Pupils can learn in a calm and purposeful atmosphere where their high academic aspirations can be fulfilled.” 
  • “Pupils and sixth formers benefit from an ambitious curriculum” 
  • “Leaders have united all staff in developing a culture where pupils manage their behaviour exceptionally well.” 
  • “Those who join from different schools [in sixth form] are warmly welcomed.” 
  • “Staff enjoy working at this inclusive school.” 

We are particularly delighted that our Ofsted inspection colleagues applauded our wonderful students for their exemplary attitudes and character: 

  • “Pupils show respect.” 
  • “Pupils are polite and articulate.” 
  • “They interact with others in a warm and considerate manner.” 
  • “They are proud to attend the school.” 

As always, we are very proud of our students and the inclusive and aspirational culture of our Crossley Heath School Family.
