We have now received the final report from Ofsted following our inspection on the 14th and 15th May 2019. The full report will be published on the Ofsted website.
During 2018, the then Governing body recognised that significant change was needed at Holloway School and in September 2018 the school joined Islington Futures Federation of Community Schools. This introduced Jo Dibb, a national leader of education, as Executive Head and Alan Streeter as the new and experienced Head Teacher. Islington Futures includes EGA, an outstanding secondary school, and the Angel Teaching School Alliance. We also decided to mark the new era for the school by renaming it Beacon High.
It is with pleasure that we attach the latest report from Ofsted, which covers the transition period from Holloway to Beacon High. It is a report that rates the school’s leadership and management as Good, and recognises the many strengths that the school has. We are all rightly proud of the inclusiveness and quality of our pastoral care that the report recognises, and the range of enrichment activities and opportunities to develop all pupils that the school offers - “The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good”.
Thank you to all staff and students who contributed to our inspection.
