Ofsted Report 2017[edit]

Maidenhill School, in 2017, received a 'Good' from Ofsted and was described to work extremely well to support the physical, mental and emotional health of its pupils. The school is said to have improved since the last inspection and it was noted that this was due to the Head Teachers 'drive and determination' to improve.

Ofsted 2017, "Not all teachers are secure in using the school’s new assessment system to provide reliable information to parents, governors and senior leaders about pupils’ progress. At times, the most able pupils are not challenged to achieve fully in line with their capabilities. This hampers their ability to attain the highest standards."
