City of Norwich School has received confirmation that the school continues to be rated good by Ofsted following its most recent inspection, which took place on the 7 and 8 December.
Inspectors found that students have a strong voice and value how leaders listen to their views. They remarked on how students lead initiatives in their academy around respecting one another and celebrating difference, which in turn enables them to develop high levels of self-confidence, responsibility, and respect.
Alongside these standout achievements, inspectors praised the academy for the various ways in which it ensures students receive an excellent education. Highlights included:
In addition, inspectors applauded the governance of the academy and referenced how governors work closely together with Ormiston Academies Trust to support leaders, which has resulted in the positive report.
Students and staff at City of Norwich School are proud of the outcomes of the inspection, which reflect the hard work put in over recent new years to continue building on the excellent foundations in place, while rising to meet the new more stringent Ofsted framework for schools.
Jo Philpott, headteacher said: “We are really pleased with the outcome of this inspection, which accurately reflects our excellence as an academy and the ambitions we hold for all of our students. It was particularly positive that inspectors recognised the contribution of both students and staff in the collaborative school community. I am delighted that our students were commended for shaping their environment and in championing CNS values, which has always been of the utmost importance to us.”
