We currently await our first Ofsted Inspection as per the Ofsted Guidance for Inspecting schools: guide for maintained and academy schools.

New schools

We usually inspect all new schools, including academies, in the first 3 years after they open. This normally happens in the school’s third year. New schools that opened prior to September 2020 and that have not had their first inspection can expect to be inspected in their fourth or fifth year of operation. This is due to the suspension of routine inspection activity as a result of COVID-19.
