Ofsted Inspectors visited Ambergate on 27th June 2017.  It has been 4 years since their last inspection.

This school continues to be outstanding.

Ofsted reported, “The leadership team has maintained the outstanding quality of education in the school since the last inspection because you and your staff have high expectations of all your pupils. You take effective action to ensure that pupils make strong progress and prepare them well for life after school. Staff know their pupils well and in teaching them, they plan appropriate learning activities that enable pupils to fulfil their potential.”

Ofsted added, “Because of precise planning that teachers undertake, this ensures that all pupils engage well with, and take pride in, their learning. As a result, nearly all pupils make outstanding progress.”

They also conveyed that staff receive regular opportunities to share best practice and learn from their colleagues’ experiences. Such occasions occur daily and in doing so, staff support each other to ensure that pupils engage with their learning and make strong progress.

Head Teacher of Ambergate Sports College, James Ellis, said he is proud of the exceptional work put in by the entire staff team.

He added, “I would just like to say a huge well done to all of the pupils and staff at Ambergate. The report proves that the work they do on a daily basis is outstanding. This judgement will continue to allow us to access the very best provision for pupils, for years to come.”

Ofsted inspectors were impressed with the leadership’s precise understanding of the quality of teaching at the school. This has been achieved through regular visits to lessons and comprehensive systems for checking pupils’ work.
