Latest Ofsted report

Priory Lodge School is rated ‘Good’ in every category by Ofsted following the latest inspection. Direct quotes from our latest Ofsted school report include:

“Pupils’ starting points are usually below those typical for their age and pupils tend to have gaps in their education. Those who attend regularly in all of the key stages make good progress both academically and in developing their personal, social and life skills.”

“Teachers know their pupils’ individual needs well, both the academic and the personal and social. They tailor the approaches they use to help pupils make good progress.”

“Teachers, therapists and teaching assistants work together to help pupils in all key stages to consolidate what they know and can do, and to learn new skills. Work is carefully planned to develop pupils’ confidence and resilience, as well as promote their academic progress.”

“The curriculum is providing a good range of courses and qualifications which help to prepare pupils for adult life.”

“The school is strongly committed to being inclusive and to promoting equality.”

“In key stage 4, all pupils take English, mathematics, sciences, physical education (PE), personal, social and health education (PSHE) classes through to life and social skills classes. Pupils can then choose options which reflect their interests and aptitudes. These provide pupils with academic subjects, such as history, and vocational courses designed to meet individual needs and aspirations. The performing arts qualification is particularly successful in supporting pupils’ personal development and well-being. The courses lead to recognised academic and vocational qualifications such as GCSE, Functional Skills and BTEC.”

“A high proportion of pupils now stay on into the sixth form to follow academic and vocational programmes, such as GCSEs, A Levels and BTEC. All of the relevant independent school standards are met.”

“The wide range of opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development include a good range of visits and visitors. Recently, pupils have been to various museums and galleries, and have taken part in an acting workshop with the Old Vic Theatre. The link with Fulham Football Club is particularly beneficial, not just in terms of sport, but other skills such as leadership and developing resilience, teamwork and independence.”
