School praised for its all-round excellence
‘Teaching is well planned to ensure pupils’ interest is captured’
In January, Chesham Prep School in Two Dells Lane, Orchards Leigh, was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which is similar to Ofsted and is the organisation responsible for the inspection of independent schools.
The results are now back and the ISI judged the school as ‘excellent’ in all areas.
Headmaster Mike Davies said: “I’d like to thank and congratulate each and every member of our talented staff for working with such dedication, professionalism and teamwork towards this amazing outcome.
“I’d also like to thank our Governors, parents and of course, our wonderful children for helping us to achieve this success.
“I look forward to working with colleagues and governors on further action plans following the report which, of course, gives us a tremendous mandate to build on in the next phase of the school’s development.”
The main findings in the report read: “The quality of pupils’ achievement and learning is excellent. Pupils are very well educated in line with the school’s aim to know each pupil as an individual and identify, develop and nurture his or her varied talents and strengths according to differing needs at different times.
“Pupils’ attainment is judged to be excellent in relation to national age related expectations. They make rapid progress in relation to pupils of a similar ability.
“The pupils’ attitude to their work and learning are exemplary. The broad curriculum is excellent and complemented by the rich provision of extracurricular activities.
“The quality of teaching is excellent and contributes highly to the pupils’ achievement.
“Teachers are enthusiastic and supportive and lessons take place in an atmosphere where pupils seek to do their best reflecting the school’s explicit ethos. Teaching is well planned to ensure that pupils’ interest is captured.”
