Ludgrove School is proud to announce it has received the highest grading possible in the Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection Report from the ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate).

Both the quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements and the quality of the pupils’ personal development were graded as excellent.

It said: "Pupils are not just physically healthy; they radiate cheerfulness and care for each other, in large part because of the priority attached by the leadership and management of the school to the fostering of their emotional well-being."

Headmaster, Mr Barber, commented: "We were graded ‘excellent’ (the highest grade) in all categories and the report was clear that the School is in good health, and we are very proud of the boys and our staff. Kindness and ambition underpin everything we do and hence why the quote above is so special."

Here are some of the further highlights from the report:

"Wonderfully spirited pupils’ display outstanding attitudes to learning, whether they are working individually, in pairs, or in groups. Throughout the school, pupils are both curious and ambitious, taking considerable leadership in their learning."

"Older pupils show care and concern for younger pupils and take responsibility for them when the opportunity allows, with inspectors witnessing many examples of kindness shown."

"Pupils attain excellent results in examinations to senior schools with rigorous entry requirements, with all successfully gaining places at their school of choice and some pupils being awarded scholarships or prizes."

"Pupils from the oldest to the youngest, are moved by the beauty of the school’s rural surroundings and appreciate greatly the freedom to explore their grounds and the opportunity this allows them to reflect."

“Pupils report that they are able to develop initiative and independence through being part of the amazing boarding community; a safe and nurturing environment where character, confidence and creativity can take root and blossom.”
