An inspector calls

We are pleased to announce that we have had our pre-opening Ofsted inspection. This inspection is a standard aspect of opening any new school and is organised to check that we have completed the wide range of tasks required to be carried out during pre-opening. It also exists to ensure that Ofsted is content that we have all the policies and procedures in place to help us deliver a high-quality education to the children of the local community from September.

While Ofsted does not publish the results of the review, both our Principal, Marta Correia and Lead Proposer for the project Regina Duarte were delighted with the feedback and are fully confident that we will continue the excellent progress we have made to date through to opening and beyond.

First free live event a great success!
