Please take a look around our website to see our high quality learning offer along with the many opportunities that we can offer your child. North Chadderton School is a "GOOD" School in all areas (Ofsted 2013).
We hope the balance of traditional values and the very highest of expectations will provide the perfect platform to enable every student to be given the best possible chance of success. The school has an unrelenting focus on its outcomes that is matched with expert guidance and support for every student.
North Chadderton achieved excellent success at both GCSE and ‘A’ Level in August 2016. The Class of 2016 beat national averages for all the major GCSE performance indicators and at ‘A’ and AS Levels the school achieved its best ever results. These superb results are testament to the hard working students along with the excellent help and guidance of their teachers.
Following on from our good Ofsted report parents will be interested to know of the latest information from Ofsted about the school's performance.
The School Comparison website provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stages. The comparison website can be used by school governors and by members of the public to check the performance of the school in which they are interested and to compare different schools.
The School Comparison website complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of school performance over a three-year period. The data covers;
- Expected progress
- Narrowing the gap between disadvantaged and other pupils
This reaffirms that at North Chadderton, a learning culture is created where students are given the opportunity to achieve the highest possible standards. Successful education is built on a solid partnership between the school, students and parents. I very much welcome the support that parents provide in reinforcing these high standards and expectations. Their strong partnership with the school enables students to develop as successful citizens of the future.
This culture of aspiration was reaffirmed when the school was inspected by Ofsted in January 2013. The school was delighted with the inspection teams’ findings and judgements, which resulted in the school being judged as ‘Good’ in all areas including the Sixth Form. The inspection team commented that:
- Achievement is well above the national averages for English and Maths.
- Teaching is good because the school has invested heavily in training teachers and support colleagues.
- A highly positive ethos and strong values result in excellent student behaviour.
- The Sixth Form is Outstanding.
- The school fosters excellent relationships with parents.
- The priorities for the school’s improvement are clearly understood by all staff.
- The Governing Body is fully committed to the success of the school.
“These good Ofsted judgements recognise the serious ‘Team Effort’ made by the entire school community along with their desire and ambition for sustained success”.
The entire team at North Chadderton is focussed on mapping the school’s journey to become Outstanding. Staff and students clearly understand their individual responsibilities within this journey built on marginal gains and highly effective teamwork.
I hope the above information clearly explains the culture of aspiration, achievement and success within North Chadderton School. I very much look forward to welcoming you to the school and working with you as your son or daughter progresses through the school.
