Dore school’s top report

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD secondary has been rated as good with outstanding aspects following a visit by inspectors from Ofsted.

Standards at Dore’s King Ecgbert School are testament to the collective efforts of talented staff, ambitious students, astute governance and effective leadership, their report says.

Students, parents and staff were found to be proud of their successful and well-regarded school, which placed a great emphasis on pupils’ personal and social development as well as their academic achievement.

The large majority of students’ learning and progress was good and their attainment was well above average.

But too few of the more able pupils gained the highest grades and some groups only made satisfactory progress with standards that were broadly average.

And despite some excellent individual performances, the sixth form did not enable all students to consistently make good progress.
