Our most recent Ofsted inspection judged the school to be good with outstanding
features. Ofsted have stated:
‘Leaders have established a positive ethos that addresses the academic
needs of pupils and promotes their wider personal and social development’
and ‘The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and
welfare is outstanding.’
On Tuesday 25 July 2017 19 intrepid travellers set off on an expedition of a lifetime to Malawi for just over 3 weeks. Travelling with 4 members of school staff and 2 Outlook Expedition Leaders the children in their teams visited our partner school in Mzuzu, the Ministry of Hope Crisis Nursery where there were 11 babies to cuddle, made bricks out of mud for the Chesney Trust Project, helped build a library at Madise CDSS, along with kayaking on Lake Malawi. Each of the children had to fund raise up to 4k to take part on the trip which was all part of their journey. Further details and photographs can be found by following the link below.
