Ofsted Reports

The Hadley Way is ensuring that pupils’ lives are transformed
Ofsted, June 2016.

Following our Ofsted inspection on 22nd June 2016, the Academy continues to be ‘Good’ and is ‘strongly improving’.

When Ofsted inspected the Academy in June they found that it has sustained its ambition and culture of high expectations: the driving force behind ‘at least good’ rates of progress for all pupils and students from Nursery through to Sixth Form. This is particularly evident in the results for Year 1 phonics, Year 2 SATs and GCSE examinations. In the Sixth Form, the vast majority of students go on to university and many to the prestigious Russell Group.’

Pervading every aspect of the school is a sense of community and of mutual respect, with parents saying ‘the school is like a family’. Students and staff proudly adhere to the school ethos; the inspection report concludes: “The Hadley Way, one of the distinguishing features of the school, encourages pupils to ‘aspire, achieve, care and endeavour.’ The Hadley Way is ensuring that pupils’ lives are transformed.”

We were previously inspected in March 2012 and also judged to be 'Good'.
