Ofsted graded ‘Good’!

We are delighted to share the outcome of our recent Ofsted inspection, there is a link on our website to the inspection report (www.todhigh.co.uk).

I have provided a small extract from the report which I thought you may like to see in advance.

As you will see, the report confirms that Todmorden High School remains a ‘good’ school.  To receive three consecutive judgements of ‘good’, the latest under yet another  and very different framework, is a challenge for any school. 

The inspectors noted that ‘Todmorden High School is a welcoming and friendly school. Pupils enjoy coming to school because they feel safe and they learn a lot. Pupils get on well with their teachers and enjoy good relationships.

Pupils know that there is always someone who will help them if they have any concerns.’ 

We are delighted with the report.  The inspection team judged the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management all to be good.  

I am extremely proud of our pupils, colleagues, Governors and all our external partners who have worked together so incredibly hard to ensure that Todmorden High School continues to raise the bar.

I hope you will read the letter which is much shorter than previous inspection reports.  It is extremely positive about everything we are doing to ensure that we deliver a first class education for every child. 

The judgement of good in all areas of inspection brings welcome recognition and validation of all the hard work that has taken place over recent years and is in line with our own self-evaluation of our current strengths and areas for further development.

Thank you to parents and carers for their unwavering support, belief and trust in both myself and the school as a whole. 

This positive outcome is without doubt the result of a huge team effort of which we all feel incredibly proud.
