A city school has been told it has "outstanding features" in what will likely be its final inspection before a major rebuild project.

Hewett Academy, in Norwich, has been praised by watchdog Ofsted in its first inspection in five years.

The school, which has been included in the government's school rebuild programme, has been rated as good with outstanding features by the education regulator.

The inspection described pupils as "happy and cared for", stating that positive behaviour "creates a calm and purposeful environment where all can thrive".

Antony Little, principal at Hewett Academy, said: "We are absolutely delighted with this outcome.

"I am grateful to our community of staff, parents, students and alumni - collectively we strive to deliver the best education possible, with a built-in support network.

"We are so pleased that this report reflects the school that we see every day."

Gareth Stevens, chief executive of the Inspiration Trust, which runs the school, said: "Hewett Academy has gone from strength to strength and I am so pleased that their hard work and dedication has been recognised."
