Keswick School highlighted in Ofsted’s annual report (2013-14)


We are delighted to have been included as a case study of outstanding practice in Ofsted’s annual report for 2013-14 and features as an example of how curriculum design and enrichment opportunities can result in outstanding outcomes for young people. The report states:

“Keswick School in the North West offers a fantastic wealth of courses, visits and enrichment opportunities.

The curriculum ensures that pupils’ skills and talents are equally encouraged in activities that range from fell running to Russian and creative writing to catering. Any student who has an idea for a course, a club or a school visit is given every encouragement to make their idea become a reality.

The sixth form curriculum is excellent. Sixth formers are particularly well prepared for future employment and higher education through the outstanding programme of study they are given. They take full advantage of the myriad opportunities to take responsibility and consequently make a major contribution to the success of the school.”

Simon Jackson, the Head teacher, said:
“Ofsted’s annual report is one of the highest profile reports in education. We’re delighted to be selected to feature in it this year. It’s a great reflection on the outstanding quality of teaching, breadth of our curriculum (including extended research) and many enrichment opportunities that our pupils enjoy at Keswick School.”
