Inspection Report 2011

Main findings

In a friendly, caring community, pupils’ personal development is excellent.   Pupils are friendly and courteous and they said that they like being at school.  The quality of pastoral care is excellent and effective arrangements identify and respond to individual needs. Pupils  are  well educated and suitably prepared for the next stage of their education.   They are highly successful in entrance examinations for Kent grammar schools.    The pupils’ achievements  are supported by good attitudes to learning in a climate of encouragement.  For a small school, the  curriculum  offers  a  good  range  of  subjects,  and  together  with  the excellent extra curricular programme, strongly assists the school in meeting its aim.

The  senior management  team provide  clear  educational  direction  and  they  are  well supported  by  subject  leaders  and  non-teaching  staff.   Consultation  is  a  strong feature of their work and there is a commitment to doing the best for the pupils.  Good links with parents, carers and guardians are promoted.  The views of parents who  responded  to  the pre-inspection  questionnaire  showed  that  they  are appreciative  of  the  education  and  care  provided  for  their  children.
Inspection judgements support these views.
