HMIe Inspection[edit]

The school's most recent HMIe inspection report for Taylor High School was published in March 2011. The outcome of the inspection was very good in many areas, such as: the structure of the schools curriculum, the quality of learning and teaching, support for pupils, pupils' impressive achievements in a wide range of activities, ethos, headteacher and senior management leadership and pupil contribution to the school community. The use of technology within the school was also highlighted as a strength.[2]
