Office for Standards in Education

What is OFSTED?

They are the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, and publish the results on their website. To read the school’s latest inspection report click on the link above.

The aim of all this work is to promote improvement and value for money in the services inspected and regulated, so that children and young people, parents and carers, adult learners and employers benefit.


There is a range of material that Ofsted require we publish on the site.  There is also a wealth of additional information for students, parents and visitors to The Academy available throughout this site. To view this information, please visit our Policies page
