An Ofsted inspection took place on the 11th-12 July at Tenbury High Ormiston Academy. We are absolutely delighted with the report which judged personal development, behaviour and welfare as outstanding and the school as good in all other areas. Overall school effectiveness is rated as Good.

Understanding a school inspection report

School inspection reports will have information such as:

  • how well inspectors think the school is doing and what it could do to make things even better
  • how well pupils are doing, both in their education and their overall well-being and personal development
  • what parents and carers think about the school
  • how up to date the school buildings are, including any boarding school living accommodation
  • how any problems or complaints are dealt with
  • how the school complies with rules and regulations.

The school inspection report often helps parents and carers decide if they want to send their child to the school. In particular it includes an overall score for how good a school is:

  • grade 1 (outstanding)
  • grade 2 (good)
  • grade 3 (requires improvement)
  • grade 4 (inadequate)

What is in the report and how long it is will depend on the type of inspection the school has received and if it is a maintained or independent school.
