Ofsted Visit January 2019

Dear Parents,

As you will be aware, Ofsted Inspectors  visited The Ashcombe for a one-day, focused review of the school.  We are delighted to confirm that, as a result of this visit, Ofsted have reconfirmed our existing status from the 2015 full inspection as offering a good and well-rounded education.  The inspection concludes that “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.  The Ashcombe School’s vision for students’ social and academic success is evident throughout the school”.

We are pleased to share their letter of confirmation with parents, students and the wider community and we are extremely appreciative of the tremendous response to ParentView from over 250 families within just 24 hours.  The overwhelmingly positive responses were acknowledged by the Ofsted team, who chose to quote several of those responses in their report.  They concluded that "Parents are very positive about the quality of education provided to students”, picking out one example that was “echoed by others” and highlighted "that the school has ‘dedicated, enthusiastic, skilled staff' ”.
