A complex needs school where education was recently rated outstanding has been given the same grade for its boarding.
Eaton Hall Specialist Academy has been given the top grading for the residential provision it offers students, just weeks after it secured the rating for its education.
Keith Bates, headteacher, said it was a “huge achievement”.
“Coming so soon after our outstanding in all areas verdict for education, to regain our rating as a residential school as well, in a separate Ofsted inspection, is massive,” he said.
Inspectors said children at the school, which is run by the Right for Success Trust, receive “excellent care from dedicated and committed staff who know the children very well”.
They said children receive “excellent emotional support”.
Valerie Moore, trust chief executive, said she was particularly pleased by areas of the report which said boarding and school life blended well.
