Ashlawn have just had an outstanding ofsted! Outstanding for their sixth form too!
What I like most about it is the teachers. Positive, ambitious teachers who believe in my children - at least - and push them - and help them - it's not perfect but I think it's a really good school. Kids say they don't care if their school is outstanding or not, but I'm sure they do.
The thing all kids hate is the coats (no blazers, just shell suit sort of material jackets, horrid). Many dc have refused to wear them - and they've won - they can now wear their own coats until February. I guess that is irrelevant to the ofsted report
