Thorpe St Andrew School’s Ofsted report is one of the best received by a Norfolk school. Here are seven key quotes from the inspectors.


• “Students achieve exceptionally well during their time at the school. There has been a consistent trend of improvement in students’ standards and achievement across the school.”

• “Leaders use a well-developed tracking system and a range of support strategies exceptionally well to identify and help any students who are at risk of underachieving.”

• “Students have excellent attitudes to learning and are eager to improve their work and grades.”

• “The behaviour of students is outstanding. This is the case in lessons and around the school, and it contributes to a calm and orderly environment.”

• “Attendance is above average and reflects students’ real enjoyment of the school. The vast majority of students are very proud of their school and speak highly of their educational experience.”

• “The principal is providing exceptionally effective and robust leadership, which is driving the continuous improvements in the school. He is well supported by the senior leadership team in encouraging both the academic and personal development of the students.”

• “A wide range of outside visits very effectively extends the work carried out in lessons, as do the large number of activities beyond the school timetable, which greatly increase students’ enjoyment and experience of the school.”

Ofsted joy for Norfolk’s biggest high school as Thorpe St Andrew School is declared “outstanding”
