As I am sure you are aware, OFSTED completed a Section 8 inspection at Sir William Romney’s School on 25th and 26th February 2020. This inspection lasted two days with the focus on the quality of education that students receive both inside and outside the classroom. The final report can be read by clicking the link below.
I am delighted to inform you that OFSTED have confirmed that Sir William Romney’s remains a good school and the all safeguarding procedures are effective at all levels. I have attached the full report for you to read at your own leisure. As Headteacher, I am incredibly proud that OFSTED have rightly recognised our strong community ethos, clear moral purpose, curriculum planning and that students develop a love of learning at Sir William Romney’s School. This would not be possible without a committed and talented team of teachers, support and operational staff across the entire school
I would like to thank all of our students and families for their incredible support during the last four years since our last inspection. I genuinely believe that Sir William Romney’s is a community to which we all belong and contribute to for the benefit of the all the students and families that we serve.
As we move towards the next chapter of Sir William Romney’s story with great confidence and pride, I can assure you that governors and leaders will continue to do what is right for our students and the areas for improvement raised by OFSTED will be a high priority.
