Our Lady of Lourdes continues to be a Good school. (Ofsted, May 2023)


Our last inspection was in May 2023 and we are delighted to advise that our school continues to be a good school.

Some highlights from the Inspector's report, include:


  • This school is full of joy.
  • Pupils attend school eagerly.
  • Leaders’ expectations for pupils are high. Pupils rise to these and meet them.
  • Behaviour in lessons is excellent.
  • Pupils are enthusiastic about school life. In lessons, they are engrossed in learning.
  • Bullying is rare. Leaders investigate any claims thoroughly and compassionately.
  • Pupils care for others.
  • There is a strong safeguarding culture.

The Inspector identified an area within our humanities curriculum where we could further improve and I am pleased to confirm that we have already started to take steps to implement her recommendations.

Please find attached a copy of the full report below, which is also available on the Ofsted website.

The outcome and Inspector’s comments are a real reflection of the dedication, commitment and hard work of everybody associated with our school.  Thank you to everybody within our school community for making Our Lady of Lourdes such a joyful place to work and learn.
