The report states: “In this outstanding school, all groups of students thrive, achieve highly and are very well prepared for the next stage of their education.”

“Teaching is outstanding because staff are highly ambitious for each student and totally committed in their aim to get the best out of each and every one.”

Headteacher Julian Baldwin is delighted with the rating. He said: “Backwell School is not a collection of buildings.
