Highlights: Feature

Harrogate Grammar School rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted

After two days of inspection, with a team of six inspectors, Ofsted reached the judgement that the overall effectiveness of Harrogate Grammar School is outstanding. They also judged the school to be outstanding in all five areas of the framework: the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management and Sixth Form provision.

Ofsted had the following to say about Harrogate Grammar School:

  • Harrogate Grammar School is an extremely rewarding place to learn. Pupils benefit from an exceptional curriculum.
  • Effective teaching and assessment enable pupils to learn well. This depth of knowledge is sustained from key stage 3 to the sixth form.
  • Through sports, outdoor pursuits and performance opportunities, pupils develop their skills and self-confidence. Pupils are articulate and polite. They are keen to engage in discussion and debate. Teachers make sure that pupils’ views are heard.
  • Pupils are attentive to their teachers and to one another. They listen to different opinions and evaluate arguments.
  • Pupils attend well and behave very well. Teachers build an atmosphere of courtesy and respect.
  • Pupils’ personal development is as important as their academic progress. Through the ‘Big Picture’ programme, pupils are taught about equality and diversity.
  • The sixth form curriculum is exceptional. Students access an extensive range of subjects.
  • The headteacher has built a very strong team of leaders at all levels. Leaders demonstrate clear moral purpose in their actions.
  • Leaders maintain a constant focus on the safety and well-being of pupils. Pupils feel safe because of the supportive environment built by staff.
