Ofsted Report

Kings Priory School opened on 1 September 2013 and received its first Ofsted inspection during June 2015.

The report, which is available to read by clicking here, gave Kings Priory School a 'good' rating:

  • The highly effective leadership of the Principal supported by other leaders, the sponsor and the academy council have successfully ensured that provision in the academy and outcomes for pupils are good.
  • The effectiveness of the early years and the sixth form are also good. Strong leadership and effective teaching result in pupils achieving well in both these stages.
  • The quality of teaching has improved rapidly since the academy opened. This is a result of high quality professional development and decisive action by leaders to eradicate weak practice.
  • Pupils achieve well because teaching is effective, the curriculum is well matched to their needs and any underperformance by pupils is quickly identified and addressed.
  • The curriculum is extensively enriched. This provides highly valuable additional experiences that strongly promote pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and greatly enhance their personal qualities and skills.
  • Pupils’ behaviour, on both sites, is exemplary. They show high levels of respect for each other and adults. In lessons, most pupils demonstrate very positive attitudes to learning and this contributes to their good progress. Pupils feel safe and very well supported by adults in the academy.
  • The academy’s work to keep pupils safe is outstanding. Pupils understand how to keep themselves safe and their conduct supports them in being safe. Staff are well trained, vigilant and responsive.
  • The academy council provides robust challenge for the academy’s leaders. The council members’ skills are well used to support improvement."
