Aylesford School Ofsted ‘Good’ in every single area - April 2020

Aylesford School has been ruled “Good” by Ofsted in every single area after a two day inspection on the 3rd and 4th of March 2020. We are delighted to share the inspectors report with you.

It gives me great pleasure to be able to share our Ofsted Inspection Report which confirms that Aylesford School is a ‘Good’ school in all categories.

When I started at Aylesford School in January 2017 as Interim Headteacher the Local Authority had already carried out a review that said that the school was inadequate in all areas. Then in November 2017 Ofsted declared Aylesford a school that required improvement but with Good Leadership, Management and 6th Form. But I could see the potential Aylesford had, and in Partnership with Wrotham School, worked hard to set the school on its journey to becoming outstanding

Since then we have worked tirelessly to improve all areas of the school and have used our drive to develop Character Education and improvement results academic qualifications to enable us to provide better opportunities and quality of education.

We are now the school of choice in the local area and are oversubscribed. We were one of the first schools, nationally to have achieved the Kitemark for Character Education and our exam results are improving significantly year on year with the majority of subjects, including English and Maths, in line with National expectations. Our Ofsted report confirms all the good work and is a tribute to all concerned with Aylesford School.

Thank you to all stakeholders-staff, students, parents, governors and members of our wider school community for your hard work and contributions.

We are now going to strive to be outstanding.

Headteacher
