Ofsted – Outstanding – ‘Leaders have high ambitions for all pupils. Pupils thrive because of the high-quality teaching and care they receive.’

Ofsted visited the school on 27 & 28 June 2023 and concluded that Gillotts is Outstanding overall, as well as in all the four key judgements – the quality of education, behaviour & attitudes, personal development, and leadership & management.

This is a tremendous outcome to have achieved and we are proud to have had the school’s successes recognised in this way.

For inspectors to say that ‘All pupils are supported to make exceptional progress’ and that ‘Pupils rise to this challenge and achieve highly’ is a great endorsement both of all the work that our staff do day in, day out, and also the way that our pupils commit themselves to being the best they can be.  The inspectors recognised our ‘inclusive and highly welcoming environment’ and that pupils are ‘very happy at the school’.

We are, as was also noted, ‘committed and reflective’ and ‘determined to improve the school even further’.

We would like to thank all of those whose work, day in, day out, has played a part in this outcome.  We have a fantastic staff team and a knowledgeable, supportive and committed governing body.  Our students are a delight to work with, the support of their engaged parents is invaluable and we are tremendously grateful for the support we receive from the wider community in Henley-on-Thames, south Oxfordshire and north Reading.
