Thank you for taking the time to visit The Radcliffe School website. I hope you find it informative and easy to use. The website is full of useful information and will give you an insight into the ethos which has enabled us to support all of our students to achieve the highest possible standards.
Following our Ofsted Inspection on 23rd and 24th November 2011, we are delighted that the Ofsted team recognized the tremendous progress the school has made over the past three years. You will probably recall that when last inspected in October 2009 the school was judged Good (2) in all aspects of its work other than Sixth Form which was judged Satisfactory (3). The school is now judged at least Good in all aspects of its work, including the Sixth Form, but with twelve judgments of Outstanding!
I am sure as you read the report that you will share our sense of pride in the achievement of the whole school community. Our students are truly Outstanding representatives of our school and the partnership between staff and students goes from strength to strength.
The Inspection Report also notes that the school community is careful to guard against complacency and I wish to reassure you that we still view our school as ‘a work in progress’. We look forward to moving yet more judgments from Good to Outstanding when Ofsted next visit.
We would like to thank you for your support. Without the partnership between parents/carers, students and staff such improvements in the quality of the provision would not have been possible.
