“Delivering an exceptional education”


WE ARE DELIGHTED to share the Ofsted inspection report that we have now received, and which will be published on the Ofsted website from next week.

The school has been awarded an Outstanding judgement in every category, including “overall effectiveness”, with the report highlighting many of the things that make us all proudest of the school: “the very highest standards”, the “warm” atmosphere and a culture where “everyone is valued”. Wilson’s is indeed a “harmonious and collaborative community”, and we were celebrating just that sense of shared identity at our very special Founder’s Service in Southwark Cathedral on the day the inspection was announced in September; the timing did put teachers and leaders under a little additional pressure!

It is very important to us that the report highlights the role of “skilled pastoral staff” and the care to “nurture pupils into accomplished citizens” because we value these things very highly. The “exceptional enrichment curriculum” is also praised, with “nothing left to chance” in order to ensure that every single pupil can benefit from the “extensive opportunities” available. Our very strong safeguarding arrangements are also mentioned: “leaders and staff are highly trained and alert to the signs of pupils at potential risk from harm”. The inspectors comment on the “highly ambitious” curriculum at Wilson’s and the fact that pupils “achieve exceptionally well academically”, being “engaged and stimulated in every lesson”. Parents, staff and pupils can take equal delight and pride in the role they play in making Wilson’s such a special place to work and learn.
