School praised for its all-round ex­cel­lence

‘Teach­ing is well planned to en­sure pupils’ in­ter­est is cap­tured’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.”
