Staff and students at William Brookes School in Much Wenlock are celebrating after Ofsted inspectors rated the comprehensive as ‘good’.
During their extensive two-day inspection, the Ofsted inspectors examined the school’s processes and procedures in detail, spoke to students, staff and governors and gathered the views of parents. Ofsted’s overwhelmingly positive findings combined with the school’s excellent A Level and GCSE exam results this summer led to the encouraging rating.
“I’m thrilled that Ofsted has officially recognised William Brookes School as a good school,” said head Geoff Renwick. “It’s a validation of our pride in our exceptional staff and students, their achievements and their contributions to school life. Our governors and staff have worked tirelessly to deliver our action plan to build an even stronger, more effective school in which every student can reach their full potential. We now have an excellent base from which to ultimately build towards ‘outstanding’ status.”
