The school’s most recent inspection was in February 2024.

The two main judgements are:

  • This school continues to be good.
  • Safeguarding is effective.

Following our recent inspection by Ofsted, I am delighted to share that the report reflects the dedication and hard work of our entire school community.

The judgement given was 'Good' and you will see that the report is very complimentary indeed about many aspects of our work as a school. In particular, I am delighted that inspectors highlighted that as a school we are  'ambitious' and that we are committed to improving the  '...life chances of every pupil.' Staff at Cressex Community School consistently work hard for our children and I would like to offer my gratitude for their continuous support and hard work. 

The  inspectors also noted that 'Pupils....consider being part of the school a privilege.' I know that my colleagues will all agree with me when I say that we actually consider serving our pupils as a privilege. We are proud to have exceptional students who diligently work towards and accomplish their objectives. Congratulations to our students for making a remarkable impression on the inspectors with their behavior, intelligence, and charm!

I would also like to thank parents/carers for their support and feedback during the inspection which resulted in feedback such as 'Pupils and families value this school highly'. The support of parents/carers is invaluable to the success of our pupils and our school. 

As we move forward, we remain dedicated to continuous improvement and will use the  feedback from the inspection to further enhance our school’s provision.

I am grateful to lead such an exceptional school with a supportive community. Congratulations to everyone for the report — it truly was a team effort that embodies our school motto: 'High achievement for all is our shared responsibility'.

Best wishes,
