The Frederick Gent School community and The Two Counties Trust has welcomed the latest Ofsted report declaring it be a ‘Good’ School. This is a significant moment for the school as it was previously graded ‘Requires Improvement’ by Ofsted in 2015.

Following two full days inspecting the overall effectiveness of the school, the inspection team have published their thorough report which is now available to read on the school’s website.

The report praises the school for being a ‘welcoming and inclusive school’ where pupils ‘treat each other with kindness’ and ‘listen respectfully to the views of others.’ It also highlights that ‘the curriculum is ambitious’ an ‘Teachers have strong subject knowledge’ which enables students to ‘succeed in learning and in life.’

Chris Woollard, Headteacher of Frederick Gent School:

‘This judgement from Ofsted is a fantastic result for the whole school community and is testament to the commitment, ambition and professionalism of all the staff. The inspectors were very pleased with the schools ‘remarkable improvement’ and were highly impressed with the quality of education, the high expectations for all students and the integration of the school’s values, ambitious, brave and caring. I’m already looking forward to seeing what the future will bring to this ‘Good’ school.’
