An Academy of the Great Learners Trust




Ofsted inspection in June 2023 


Overall effectiveness = Good


The quality of education = Good

Behaviour and attitudes = Outstanding

Personal development = Outstanding

Leadership and management = Good


We are very pleased that the behaviour and attitudes of the children was highlighted as a real area of strength for the school. The children here make me incredibly proud to be the Headteacher and I'm so glad that this was evident so clearly to the inspectors. The personal development we offer here for the children is also a massive strength. Our curriculum goes above and beyond the National Curriculum as we offer so many amazing experiences with our trips, WOW days and school events such as the Public Speaking Competition and Bedgrove's Got Talent! 


The last time the school was inspected, the school was Good in all four areas so I'm very pleased we have improved in some areas which is testament to the hard work the teachers and students put in every day.
