Ofsted inspected Harris Academy Orpington at the end of June 2019. This was the first inspection since the academy opened three years ago. Before this, The Priory School had been judged to be failing by Ofsted, which rated it as ‘Inadequate’.
We are pleased that Ofsted has concluded the school is no longer failing, for the first time since March 2016.
Our Sixth Form was judged to be ‘good’ but the school as a whole still requires improvement. Ofsted were clear that ‘leaders are determined to improve the life chances of the pupils the school serves. They have made clear improvements to the quality of education provided by the predecessor school’.
Inspectors were also positive about leadership decisions that have recently been made regarding the curriculum we teach and the way in which we protect the safety of pupils.
In the report, it is particularly good to see references to our extra-curricular provision in sports and the arts, enrichment activities for gifted students and the quality of support and training for staff.
