PUBLISHED: 14:07 09 November 2012
Beths Grammar School has been awarded a certificate by school inspectors Ofsted for its outstanding performance in all areas.
The Bexley institution was given half a day’s notice to prepare for the inspection at the end of September and inspectors observed parts of 50 lessons, assemblies, breaks and assemblies.
They also spoke to people from across the school including students, teachers and governors.
Headteacher James Skinner said: “This September a new, much tougher Ofsted framework was introduced and just a few weeks ago we were one of the first schools to be inspected under this regime.
“I am delighted with the outcome, especially being judged outstanding in all areas, which reflects well on our teachers, pupils and results.”
The results were published on October 18 and the certificate was awarded on November 5.
Cllr John Fuller said: “This is a fantastic achievement.
“I was particularly impressed that while students enter the school with above average attainment it is still able to consistently challenge and produce results even higher than was expected for its students.”
