The Oftsed Inspection
The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) are responsible for the inspection and regulation services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Bradford Girls’ Grammar School received a full inspection on 24 and 25 June 2015.
Some of the observations made by the Ofsted team:
- The Principal leads the school effectively with passion and determination.
- Staff are confident in her leadership.
- Leaders, governors and staff have achieved significant and successful developments over a two year period and demonstrate a commitment to further improvements.
- Leaders and governors ensure all staff know how to keep pupils safe.
- The curriculum helps pupils to understand potential risks to their safety and well being beyond the school gates.
- Pupils make good progress and achieve well, as a result of good teaching. Rapid developments in the quality of teaching means that all pupils benefit from the highly aspirational values of the school.
- Pupils are polite, courteous and grow in confidence as a result of the rich experiences the school offers.
- Sixth form students achieve high standards and go on to the universities and further education of their choice. They recognise the benefits of hard work and are well prepared for the next step in their lives.
Hard copies are also available from the main school reception.
