Dear Students, Parents and Carers
You will recall that Ofsted inspected our School on 28th and 29th November 2023. I am now able to write to you to share the outcomes of the inspection and provide a copy of the report. This will be published on the Ofsted website within the next seven working days.
As you know the School was subject to a full graded inspection under the new rigorous and demanding Ofsted inspection framework. I am incredibly proud and delighted to share with you the judgements of the inspection team, as follows:
Quality of Education Outstanding
Behaviour and Attitudes Outstanding
Personal Development Outstanding
Leadership and Management Outstanding
Sixth form provision Outstanding
Overall effectiveness Outstanding

This was a full graded inspection with five inspectors on site across the two days evaluating all aspects of our provision through visits to lessons, observing social times, looking at work, talking to students and meeting with leaders, governors and other staff at the School.
May I take this opportunity to thank all members of our community for their support and contributions to the inspection. In particular, thank you to all of our staff for their hardwork and efforts and thank you to our students for showcasing a Girls’ High education and being such fantastic ambassadors.
During the course of the inspection, it was with much pride that I witnessed the many strengths of our school shine through. We have a lot to celebrate and will continue to reflect and develop our provision to meet the needs of our students in all aspects of school life. I hope you enjoy reading the report.
