Ofsted & Academy Performance Data

On the 3 & 4 June 2015, we had a visit from Ofsted to check on the progress of the school.  We are delighted to report that Ofsted have designated The Bulwell Academy to be a GOOD school.

  • The Principal and senior leaders are rigorous and committed; they have brought about rapid improvements to most areas of the academy.
  • Most teachers ensure the good progress of students by planning lessons meticulously and addressing students’ weaknesses quickly and, as a result, the students make good progress.
  • Disabled students and those with special educational needs make good progress throughout the academy. Leadership of this work of the academy is exceptionally strong.
  • The pastoral care in the academy is exemplary; teachers provide high levels of care and support for students whose circumstances have made them vulnerable.
  • Students make rapid progress in both English and mathematics because of the consistently high quality of teaching in these subjects.
  • Students’ behaviour around the academy is respectful and orderly; most show high levels of engagement in lessons.
  • Disadvantaged students make rapid progress, especially at Key Stage 3.
  • Outcomes in the sixth form are improving quickly; good quality teaching and leadership have ensured that almost all students make the progress they should.
  • Governors and sponsors have supported the academy very well; resources have been used effectively and leaders are held to account rigorously.

The latest Ofsted Inspection report and previous Ofsted reports are available to download on the Ofsted website.
