Brookmans Park school maintains high standards after inspection

A Brookmans Park school, rated ‘good’, has come out of its latest brush with the Ofsted inspector unscathed.
Chancellor’s School had its last full Ofsted inspection in September 2014, when it was found to be ‘good’.
Four years later, a short inspection has found that “the leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school”.
In a letter to headteacher David Croston on October 22, inspectors wrote: “You and other leaders are rightly proud of the improvements made to the school since you became headteacher.”
The report commended the pupils’ behaviour and attitude to learning, saying they clearly enjoy school.

Safeguarding is high, with Year 7 pupils following a ‘how to thrive’ curriculum that includes topics such as the use of social media, equalities, anxiety and body image; while sixth formers value the learning days where they explore topics about personal safety in the face of issues like gang crime, drugs and relationships.
When it comes to disadvantaged pupils, who had not progressed as well as they should in 2017, “leaders are aware that not all of their strategies have been successful”. However, the school has continued to adapt its approach.
