Message from the Principal
following Bethnal Green Academy’s Ofsted Inspection
Thank you for your interest in our school.
I have seen quite a few changes since I became Principal of Bethnal Green Academy. The school today is very different from the one I first walked into in 2007. Back then it was a school with poor standards and an even poorer reputation.
It is a very different place now.
Further to our Ofsted Inspection on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th December 2012, I am delighted to inform you that Bethnal Green Academy was judged ‘Outstanding’ in all categories.
The four Ofsted categories covering ‘Achievement of pupils’, ‘Quality of teaching’, ‘Behaviour and safety of pupils’ and ‘Leadership and management’ all received the highest judgement – ‘Outstanding’.
The inspection report comments that “students’ achievement in Key Stage 3 and 4 is remarkable”. It further states that “the standards they reach overall at the end of Year 11 are higher than those of other students in the country even though the majority start at the Academy with attainment that is below the national average”.
To be acknowledged as ‘Outstanding’ in all categories is an immense honour and places Bethnal Green Academy amongst the very best academies and schools in the country. The credit for this goes to our governors, staff and to our students and their families. We're proud to be an ‘Outstanding’ Academy that serves one of the most deprived areas in the country and we all share the belief that our children have the right to an outstanding education. It's always been our goal to work with our local community and we know that background, place of birth or post code need never be an obstacle in fulfilling your dreams and aspirations.
