Grey Court is celebrating a triple success after the publication of its Ofsted inspection.

The school ranked outstanding in all areas, including its new sixth form, in the report published on January 26.

This news came the day after the government’s publication of school league tables that, for the first time, show the attainment of all students based on their individual progress. Grey Court had the highest progress score of any school in the borough for post 16 provision.

Thirdly, it is also the 12th highest ranked non-selective school in the country for the proportion of Grades 7-9 attained by students at GCSE (A-A* equivalent) according The Times’ school league table.

Maggie Bailey, Grey Court Head Teacher, said: “This report is an external validation of the relentless pursuit of excellence by everyone involved with Grey Court school and the Every Child, Every Day academy Trust.

“The students and their families within our community are exceptional. We just now need to crack on now as the possibilities are endless.”

“Everyone works really hard; we expect a lot of our students and they expect a lot from us, but we pull together as a community and it is the spirit of the place that strikes you when you come visit the school.”

Key among Ofsted’s findings was the level of parental confidence in the school’s provision across all age groups, reinforced by the volume of parents who rushed to respond positively to Ofsted’s online questionnaire.

To top off this success, three current sixth formers have received Oxbridge offers and hope to follow in the footsteps of former Grey Court students Amelia Sadat, Shannon Bryant, Ella Davies and Lily Finnie who all took up places at Oxbridge this year.
