Ofsted Inspection

We were inspected in March 2012. You can download the report or go straight to the Ofsted website through the boxes on the right.

Since January 2012 the Ofsted inspection has become simplified and now each school is judged by five overall criteria:

  • Overall effectiveness
  • Achievement of pupils
  • Quality of teaching
  • Behaviour and safety of pupils
  • Leadership and management

Barnhill Community High was judged GOOD for all five areas.
