Ofsted Report says Outstanding!

As you are aware, we have now received the Ofsted report following the inspection on 31st October and 1st November. I am proud and delighted to be able share the report with you. The full report can be found here:


The school has been classified as Outstanding which is fantastic news and is a fitting testament to the hard work and dedication of all the staff. The school was praised for its ambitious vision of a well-rounded education, where pupils have a genuine sense of joy in learning. The excellent teaching was seen as exciting and broad, with a balanced curriculum which made pupils very well prepared for life in modern Britain. Results are exceptionally strong including those for disadvantaged and SEN pupils as a result of the carefully tailored support all the children receive. The inspectors also noted how wonderful our children are in so many ways. You can be rightly proud of how hard your children work and how well they behave. 

Mrs Alexander and the Governors join me in taking this opportunity to thank all teachers, staff and the wider parent community for all the help and support they give to the children and the school in general.

We are all very proud of this achievement and are delighted that the inspectors shared our vision of Hernhill. They saw for themselves how we expand the horizons of our pupils and inspire them to learn. 

Yours sincerely

Helen Figgis
Chair of Governors
