School on Upward Trajectory

Ofsted Report June 2019

The success of The Wilnecote School’s improvement journey has been recognised by Ofsted inspectors.

The Wilnecote School received a much improved Ofsted report following its recent inspection. Inspectors rated leadership and management, behaviour and personal development and welfare as good and noted that ‘the school is improving in all areas with rapid improvement evident in many areas’.

Inspectors noted that due to ‘determined strategic leadership’: behaviour is good’; ‘outcomes improved considerably in all subjects in 2018’ and ‘pastoral care and support for pupils are a strength of the school’.

The Headteacher, Sian Hartle, welcomed the Ofsted report for highlighting all the significant changes that have taken place at The Wilnecote School. “We are about to welcome the biggest Year 7 cohort we have had for over eight years in September. This is indicative of the ‘increasingly positive’ perception of our school with inspectors noting that an ‘ever increasing number of parents are choosing The Wilnecote School for their children’. Our students are so supportive of the developments they have seen and, most importantly, have been part of designing and implementing and we look forward together to the changes the future will bring as we build on the recent report.

Philip Hamilton OBE, CEO of the Community Academies Trust said “This is wonderful news.  Strong leadership in the school at all levels has supported a talented team of staff to make a real difference.  Young people throughout The Wilnecote School are now making progress in a disciplined environment where there is real momentum for even further improvements.  Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved in achieving this important milestone.”
