Ofsted and performance data

Praised by Ofsted after 15 months

The full Ofsted report, providing comprehensive detail of the effectiveness of Bolingbroke Academy in each of the four categories, can be viewed here. But in the interest of convenience, we have picked out a few key aspects to be considered.

The Ofsted team particularly highlighted the quality of teaching and learning at Bolingbroke:

“Good and outstanding teaching is characterised by a rapid pace and high levels of challenge. Skilful questioning checks students’ learning and probes and pushes them to think more deeply.”

The inspection team commended our pupils and staff for creating a brand new secondary academy which meets the needs of the local community.  The report recognises that all children have an opportunity to thrive and develop “a springboard to a successful future.”

The report says that in such a short period we have “established a clear vision, ethos and culture for the academy. This has allowed the academy to develop a very strong and consistent message of ambition and excellence throughout its community.”

Pupils were excited to share their experiences of Bolingbroke Academy with the Ofsted inspectors. They are proud to attend our school, are “polite and courteous at all times” and the “extensive and varied curriculum” allows all pupils to engage and make good progress in subjects like English, mathematics and science, while additional activities “enrich their life experience.”

We look forward to sharing this feedback with our pupils, parents and local community.
