Delight for Gosfield School after glowing report from Independent Schools Inspectorate
A headteacher at an independent school has praised its high standards, following a glowing inspection report.
Gosfield School, in Halstead Road, which provides education from nursery through to sixth form, was recognised for its strong leadership skills by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).
The ISI is an educational body responsible for the inspection of independent schools.
All requirements were successfully met across the board, with inspectors noting the school’s strong principles and values in promoting students as tolerant and law-abiding citizens.
Good behaviour was also recognised as being well-managed, with sufficient safeguarding measures in place.
Principal Guy Martyn, who joined the school in January, praised the findings.
“The staff and governors are delighted to have received this very satisfying inspection report,” he said.
“This inspection doesn’t provide a judgement of the quality of education here, but rather confirms that we meet all the regulatory requirements.
“However, this is an essential component for all schools and one which ensures our wonderful pupils can enjoy and achieve at Gosfield.
“I am very grateful that our successful inspection recognises the skill, knowledge and effectiveness of all our staff and the leadership team here.
“It is their hard work and dedication that underpins this great inspection outcome.”
Founded in 1929, Gosfield School is based on a 110-acre estate, comprising mature parkland, woodlands and a variety of sports pitches.
The senior school and sixth form occupy an elegant Georgian manor, while the prep school and nursery benefit from purpose-built contemporary buildings.
