Westleigh High School
Westleigh High School has been a College of Technology for 10 years now and as a result we have state of the art facilities including a new computer suite. All classrooms have an interactive whiteboard and every faculty area has a class set of laptops.
The academic year 2007/8 has been a fantastic year for us with an excellent Ofsted report in October 2007- Of the 26 categories which were assessed 15 were regarded as Outstanding,10 Good and 1 Satisfactory.
I was delighted when Ofsted confirmed what I already knew about Westleigh High School and the following comments are taken from the Ofsted report and if you would like a copy then either phone school or go on to the Ofsted web-site where you can access reports from any high school in the country.
'This is a good school, in which outstanding leadership and management have brought about marked improvements in both academic standards and students' personal development.'
'In 2007, for example, the proportion of students reaching five or more higher grades in their GCSEs, including English and mathematics, was just below the national average and there was a higher percentage of grades A* and A than ever before.'
'The rich range of technology and vocational provision is a hallmark of the excellent curriculum, particularly in Key Stage 4.'
'Students of all levels of ability make good progress across the school. This is due to the high quality of academic guidance they receive.'
'Personal development and well-being are outstanding. Students are keen to come to school and they enjoy learning. There has been a significant improvement in attendance, which is now just above the national average and well above what is typical in similar schools.'
'Students wear their uniform with pride and demonstrate the highest respect for one another and for the school environment.'
'Technology college status and the many enterprise activities in both key stages boost students' understanding of the world of work. Their good progress in mathematics and information and communication technology in particular prepares them well for life after formal education.'
'The quality of teaching and learning is good and there are examples of outstanding practice in both key stages. Teachers and teaching assistants treat their students with respect and dignity and classroom management is of a high order.'
'The curriculum is outstanding and the school's status as a specialist college of technology provides many imaginative and highly effective opportunities for the development of vocational and enterprise education.'
'The range of vocational courses, involving learning both on and off the school site, is quite superb.'
'The quality of care, guidance and support is outstanding and adults who work in the school demonstrate the highest level of commitment to helping students of all backgrounds and abilities to succeed.'
'Rising standards, good achievement and the outstanding personal development of students are evidence of excellent leadership and management which are focused on providing the very best for the students in the school.'
'Resources, including high quality computer and software equipment provided by technology college status, are deployed very effectively and have a powerful impact on learning and on raising standards and achievement.
