After a rigorous inspection over three days during which inspectors saw almost 50 lessons, gained feedback from you as parents and carers, spoke to over 100 students, staff, external colleges and governors, Hounsdown School has been graded Outstanding in all four categories.
During the inspection days the school felt very much, ‘business as usual’ with our students demonstrating pride for their school and respect for each other. The Outstanding outcome of this inspection is therefore nothing less than the Hounsdown School community truly deserves. Furthermore, this glowing report would not have been achieved without the support of parents, carers and the wider community, something that has always been a strength.
We continue to live by our motto, ‘Getting better never stops’ and it was great to hear inspectors judge that the school is both in a strong position now and able to further improve in the future. Thank you again for your continued support. We look forward to continuing to work with you to keep improving. There will always be issues to improve and reflect upon, and we will continue to strive to make Hounsdown the best school it can be for the students in its care.
The students and staff deserve all of the credit they receive in this report.
