Ofsted conducts an annual routine inspection of the school’s boarding, welfare and safeguarding arrangements. 

Our most recent inspection was in January 2022, and resulted again in the highest possible grades being awarded across the board.

The inspection judgements were:

 Overall experiences and progress of children and young people,   taking into account:

 Outstanding

  • How well children and young people are helped and protected

 Outstanding

  • The effectiveness of leaders and managers

  Outstanding

 

You can read the full report below, or search for it on Ofsted's own website:

 

We have picked out a few highlights from the text of the report to share on this page: 

We know that the experience of our boarding pupils is exceptional, and a key factor in their success.  We are delighted that the Department for Education's inspection team has again validated this, recognising the inspiring commitment of our residential team and that we afford our pupils excellence in their school and boarding-time experience.

 

This inspection reconfirmed the findings of our previous years' inspections: that More House School is an exceptional environment graded Outstanding in all areas by the Department for Education’s inspectorate.
