Ofsted Inspection

On Wednesday 7 December 2011 and Thursday 8 December 2011 we were inspected by OFSTED, the Government agency that visits schools and grades them on the quality of education they provide for students. QK was graded as Outstanding (Grade 1) overall and in virtually every area – 83% of lessons were judged good/outstanding. This is an absolutely fantastic achievement for all of us at the school – the staff, the students and you, the parents. A big thank you to those students and parents who were interviewed by the inspectors and were able to talk so articulately about how much the school means to them.

Quintin Kynaston School was previously visited on 10th December 2008. QK was graded as Outstanding (Grade 1) overall and in virtually every area. The Lead Inspector Ms Asyia Kazmi was incredibly impressed by the work that we do at QK to support students, both academically and pastorally - the care and guidance that they receive here. She said, "It was a privilege to be at this school" and that in 12 years of inspecting schools, she had never been in a school where the ethos was so clearly about Every Child Matters.
