A Pill headteacher is ‘delighted’ with his school’s latest Ofsted report, with inspectors reporting of ‘outstanding’ teaching in the classrooms.
St Katherine’s School was told this week it has been rated ‘good’ following an inspection in late-September, with its leadership and management praised.
The rating comes as a positive step after St Katherine’s was told to make improvements after its previous inspection two years ago.
Headteacher Christopher Sammons praised the ‘tireless’ staff and says he is ‘proud’ of the inspection’s outcome.
He said: “I am delighted that Ofsted inspectors have judged our school to have good academic outcomes and outstanding pastoral care.
