We are delighted to be able to share the report we have received from Ofsted following our inspection in May 2024. 

The report summarises the inspectors’ findings from the two day inspection that maintained the existing judgment of being a ‘good’ school. It is a very positive read which we believe captures the essence of Sackville well.

Highlights include powerful statements such as:

  • “The school is ambitious for all pupils to enjoy learning and achieve highly.”
  • “Pupils benefit from the emphasis on developing skills and attitudes.”
  • “Sharp focus on pupils’ well-being, with the five ‘Communities’ being at the heart.”
  • “Focused on continual improvement with effective challenge from governors.”
  • “Sixth-form students act as strong role models.”


These are just a few examples of a multitude of strongly positive comments throughout the report.
The curriculum we offer, both across the school and within subjects was highly commended. The subjects that were part of the ‘deep dive’ process were commended for their high quality work and provision for the students at Sackville.

The highlighting of our community system is extremely pleasing given this was introduced in September 2023 with the aim of helping all students feel known and cared for in a large secondary school. We are proud of the work that has already happened in this area and the way this came through to the inspection team during their time with us.

We hope you enjoy the report and if you have any questions or would like to know more please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
