Hylands school was delighted with the outcomes of their recent monitoring inspection from Ofsted. The report has just been published on the Ofsted website, and it concluded that, "Leaders and those responsible for governance are taking effective action in order for the school to become a good school."
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the inspection found that there is a clear focus on improving the school. Reading is a priority, and all pupils are encouraged and supported to read a wide range of books so that they can access every area of the exciting and challenging curriculum.
"Hylands' habits" are having an impact, and ensuring that everyone has high expectations, and a positive attitude to learning.
Headteacher Andrew Parry said, "I am really pleased that the hard work we are all putting in and the progress the school is making has been recognised by Ofsted. It's fantastic that in the summer our Year 11 and Year 13 students got the outcomes their commitment and resilience deserved. I'm very confident that Summer 2022 results and our next Ofsted inspection will confirm that we are a good school. We really welcome young people and their families to come and see for themselves the school that Hylands is today."
Dr Karen Roberts, CEO of the Kemnal Academies Trust, commented, "Hylands School is to be congratulated for the progress it has made. We are delighted that the partnership between the school and the Trust has led to such significant improvements that will greatly benefit the pupils and the community. We have every confidence that, supported by the Trust, Hylands School will continue to improve and rapidly become a great school."
