Ofsted Report March 2017
Holly Lodge is celebrating their latest Ofsted inspection result. The inspection reports so full of really positive statements that are such a true reflection of the daily routines and progress made by students at the school. Inspectors found that “This school continues to be good” the school has a real momentum and has continued to maintain a standard it can be pleased with.
Holly Lodge continues to be a school of parental choice and has grown significantly since the last inspection in 2013 to over 1450 students.
The report from the inspection highlights “leadership team are fully committed to creating a culture of continuous school improvement”
Students are “well behaved”, “engaged enthusiastically with their learning” and “polite and courteous to each other around the school site”
As Headteacher I have to confess to being so proud of my staff and students. The school has outstanding and committed staff who continually work to challenge and develop students through their teaching and support.
With such a resource we are able to boast about the level of progress our students make “Pupils made significantly better progress than others nationally in languages and humanities” Parents are supportive and can rest assured that their children are in an environment in which “Leaders, including governors, take their responsibilities for safeguarding very seriously.” And one in which “The curriculum includes numerous opportunities to improve pupils’ understanding of how to keep themselves safe.”
What is more this success stretches through to a growing Sixth form which has seen records for performance beaten each year so far. Holly Lodge is a school proud of what it provides to its community and will continue to strive to live up to its core belief in ‘Success for All’.
“The school has welcomed a considerable number of pupils who are newly arrived in the UK and are providing good support to help them develop English language skills and an understanding of British values”

Very effective support is given, both in and out of the classroom, to students who face particular barriers to their progress such as language or learning difficulties.
Good teaching means that teachers typically ensure that students are actively involved in learning, through well-organised practical or problem-solving tasks, or through well-managed discussions.
