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.

“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.
