Ofsted Information

St Michael's Catholic High School received an Outstanding Ofsted rating in November 2014.

Students make outstanding progress and the vast majority achieve above-average standards in a range of subjects at GCSE, including English and mathematics.

Teaching is outstanding. Teachers teach with authority because they have good subject knowledge. They plan interesting and enjoyable learning activities, which challenge students to work hard and achieve their best.

Disadvantaged students, disabled students and those with special educational needs, make excellent progress and achieve well because the targeted funding is used effectively to support them. The most-able students are stretched and challenged in lessons, and participate in ‘master classes’ and visits to universities.

Students’ behaviour is outstanding. They are highly collaborative, courteous, polite and considerate.

The sixth form is outstanding. High expectations from leaders and teachers underpin students’ commitment to strive to achieve high grades. There is an increase in the proportion achieving higher grades and progressing to good universities.
