Following our recent Ofsted inspection, I am delighted to inform you that The Lenham School has been assessed as Good in every category.
Ofsted recognised that students, staff and parents have worked together over recent years to create “a good school where pupils’ academic and social success are important to leaders and staff.”
I would like to acknowledge the pride that students expressed when asked about their school by the Ofsted Team, who reported that, “Pupils say that they are proud of their school. They work with purpose and commitment. Pupils’ determined attitudes are having a positive impact on their achievement.”
As a member of the teaching team at The Lenham School I am pleased the hard work and dedication of teachers was recognised when Ofsted commented that “Teachers know their subjects well. As a result, pupils develop knowledge, skills and confidence across their learning. Committed teaching and the increasingly well-planned curriculum mean that pupils achieve well.”
We recently introduced the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme to our sixth-form and the report identified that, “Sixth-form students enjoy school, attend regularly and achieve well. They are very positive about their studies. In the sixth form, they choose from a range of academic and vocational courses.”
As you read the full report, I am certain that you will gain a sense of how much we have already achieved, as well as being excited about the future for The Lenham School.
