Harris Academy St John's Wood is a "GOOD" school
Harris Academy St. John’s Wood has been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in its first inspection since it joined the Harris Federation.
The report showcases a significant transformation at the school which, on its last inspection as Quintin Kynaston, was placed in ‘special measures’.
Of the five areas judged by Ofsted, two were found to be ‘Outstanding’ already – the behaviour and attitudes of the academy’s students, and the Sixth Form.
As well as praising the ‘well-crafted curriculum’ on offer at the academy, the report notes the exceptional education and support provided to all students.
- On behaviour, described by inspectors as “impeccable”:
- “Pupils know that standards of behaviour are given high priority in this school. Leaders expect nothing less than excellent and that is what they get.”
- On academic success:
- “Whatever their background, pupils go on to achieve very well in GCSE examinations and in a wide range of courses in the sixth form.”
- “Disadvantaged students achieve very well.”
- “Almost all students go on to higher education, many to top universities, including disadvantaged students.”
- On parents: “The partnership with parents is strong and they are highly supportive of the school."
